Video: Christmas Special 2009, addiction support, relapse prevention with George Williams

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

Ed Mitchell and George Williams introduce the Inexcess offering for the festive season. We have spoken to those in the know about what strategies we might use to avoid relapse at Christmas and have an enjoyable time. This includes words of wisdom about making sure you are occupied and the importance of a support network.

We also have the opportunity to see some of the performances from the Outside Edge Theatre Company including Martin Hobbs and Cathy Walker performing extracts from My name Is Bill.

We finish the film with a moving performance from Bess Cavendish who sings, “Live Your Life”. A fitting end to a busy year for Inexcess TV
