AddictsRpeople is the site of Kevin Johnston, a former heroin addict. Kev has overcome his addiction through the help and support of the Prince’s Trust and wishes to repay this by helping others who may be vulnerable.
He has been involved heavily in Governmental policy discussions and has spoken at length with Prince Charles and government representatives including Tony Blair. In addition, he was featured on the Pride of Britain television programme in March 2004.
One of Kev's real strengths lies in his skill as a speaker. His clear anti-drugs message is passed on with a passion that involves the audience and provokes thought. Kev believes that boredom and a lack of opportunities in life are major negative influences and sees self-confidence, trust and the ability to cooperate with others as key factors that help young people stay clean.
