ADDICTION AND PRISON - THE UNDOING OF SHAME
When Elliot went to prison for three years addicted to class A drugs, his life and the life of his partner Lisa changed forever. During his sentence, Lisa started the Instagram account ‘Bluebaglife’ as a safe space to share their ongoing experiences. It quickly amassed a strong following of people fascinated by their stories or with a shared experience.
Since Elliot’s release in April 2019, ‘Bluebaglife’ has taken on a life of its own and the couple are using their network of supporters to aid their collective recovery and undo the shame associated with addiction and prison. Lisa and Elliot will be delivering their talk together, giving both sides of the story
