Documentary showing the damage that addiction can leave in its wake and the means by which family members try to cope and intervene. Living with an Addict looks at a family of five, in Mayo, who have grown up with an alcoholic mother; Bray businessman, Dave Tew, dealing with the presence of a heroin addict in the family; and the impact that gambling addiction has had on Galway hurler Davy Glennon’s mother and brother. We also visit a respite centre in Tipperary that provides therapeutic care for Cora Buckley and other affected families.
