A conversation between Hannah Brooks and Paul Garrigan
Hannah stayed with us at Hope for about five months. She documented her stay in a series of fascinating articles for Vice Magazine (see links below). Here she talks about her experience of being a heroin addict and a chronic relapser. We planned for this interview to last 15 minutes, but we ended up talking for much longer.
