Recovering Our Stories

Back in 2018, artist and illustrator Glenn Hustler started a project with some of the people attending our Structured Recovery Programme. Glenn wanted to help individuals, all with personal experience of addiction and struggle with mental health, to tell their life stories to challenge the stigma that exists offer hope to others facing similar challenges. What came out of this work was a comic book, ‘Recovering Our Stories’.

Recovering Our Stories tells the accounts of six individuals who have all been supported by Project 6 into recovery from drug or alcohol use. Told non-judgmentally and in their own words, the stories give a fascinating and honest account of how the issues raised come to affect anyone, regardless of age, class, gender, education or background. Over 68 pages, the stories told show the real people behind the labels of ‘addict’ or ‘drunk’ and beautifully show how we are all complicated beings with competing motivations and wants.

Recovering Our Stories was initially sold as a run of 100 copies. Once these sold out Project 6 commissioned a second print to share these remarkable and inspiring stories with a new audience.
