  Heroin mum Thursday 19 February 2004  
For the last year Pat Farrar and her husband Andrew have been looking after babies born to women and girls addicted to heroin and crack cocaine.

Pat's patient treatment in weaning the babies off the drugs has proved to be spectacularly successful, better than the results achieved if the babies are looked after in hospital.
At any one time she has two drug addicted babies at her home and she can wean them off the drugs within ten days. Janet Wilson went to meet her.
