Eighties pop star supports drugs recovery programme
AN Eighties pop star has lent his support to an initiative in Henley designed to help people recovering from drug or alcohol addiction.
John Taylor, bass guitarist with Duran Duran, visited the Henley Recovery Café at the d:two centre in Market Place and spoke about his life in recovery and his support for residential rehabilitation and peer support.
He shared his own personal experiences with addiction and its impact on others and heard stories of recovery from mothers who have cared for a loved one struggling with substance misuse.
Taylor said: “I could not control my use of alcohol or drugs and my using caused me to behave in ways I never would have done had I been sober.
“Nineteen years ago, I checked into a rehab facility. I spent 30 days there and it turned my life around.
