Video Description

"The Alcohol & Drug Service (ADS) has been transforming lives for more than 25 years. Here is one true story about Caroline, a brave lady from Hull who has battled back from addictions to drugs and alcohol to reclaim her life and her family.

Caroline was supported in her recovery by 1) The East Riding Partnership, a service which ADS delivers in partnership with Humber NHS Foundation Trust; and 2) by the East Riding Alcohol Aftercare Service, which is delivered by ADS.

Caroline says: ""If somebody out there now is still using or drinking, you can get your life back. It's hard in recovery but it's better than being picked up from the gutter. And you can do it. I did.""

If you have been affected by the issues raised in Caroline's Story, call our confidential helpline on 01482 320 606. Or visit"
