Russell Brand has told Newsnight's Stephanie Flanders he believes in ''abstinence-based recovery'' as a method to tackle drug and alcohol addiction.

The comedian has made a documentary for BBC Three charting his own recovery, which includes footage of his life as a drug addict.

''I took drugs every single day,'' he said.
