‘Our addiction will make us better employees’

The presenters of BBC Radio 5 Live’s Hooked podcast have spoken about how they believe their addictions will make them better employees in the long-term.

In the new episode, now available on BBC Sounds, Melissa Rice who worked as a teacher, and Jade Wye who was a nurse, explained what transferable skills they’d gained since going into recovery.

Hooked: The Unexpected Addicts, which debunks the stereotype around addiction, is now available to download on BBC Sounds.
