Ep 9. Adwoa talks about the addictions of sports stars and how a life in the spotlight can be so dangerous.

In this fascinating episode, I invite Sporting Chance onto the podcast to tell me about their work in the rehabilitation of sports stars who are suffering from addiction. The charity was founded by England and Arsenal player, Tony Adams after his own battle with addiction, and it does excellent work helping athletes of all kinds in their recovery. We dissect the underlying reasons behind pro athletes becoming addicted to drugs, alcohol or gambling, as Alex and Colin shine a light on their rehab methods. I’ve loved every second of this month as we’ve uncovered your surprising, honest and inspirational stories around addiction. This episode delves into the victims of addiction that we may not consider. I found it hugely eye-opening and can’t thank Colin and Alex enough for enlightening us.
