The resource can be used with students and practitioners as a way of gaining insight into parental subtance use. The 15 minute story documents Johnny's reflections on how his drug use developed; incidents of relapse and recovery; the impact of his substance use on his parenting and his involvement with children's social care. Johnny's story was created as part of the Parents' Story Project which was a research collaboration between Dr Mel Hughes, Bournemouth University and Sarah Sanford, Bournemouth Drug and Alcohol Action Team.
