A former drug user has given a harrowing account of life as an addict in Chesterfield.

Sarah - which is not her real name - is now 11 weeks clean and has been struggling with drug dependency on and off for ten years. She prefers to remain nameless for her own safety but contacted the Derbyshire Times because she wants people to understand the ‘real story’ behind the headlines.
