ADDICTED PARENTS: LAST CHANCE TO KEEP MY CHILDREN
The story of the only family rehab in the UK, where children live with addicted mums and dads as they recover. They have 6 months to get clean, or they will lose their children for good.
Filmed over a year, with unprecedented access to staff and residents, this two-part series follows several families from the beginning to the end of their treatment. They arrive as a family unit; whether they leave as one is up to them.
The first film tells the story of four mothers who have spent years addicted to drugs, and have reached the end of the line. It’s time to try to become sober parents to their young children, or face losing them. The second film follows one young couple and their uphill battle to overcome their addiction to heroin so they can leave rehab with their two-year-old son. The choice is clear: drugs or their child.
