In this episode we speak to Sohan Sahota, managing director of BAC-IN, a Nottingham based, specialist drug and alcohol recovery support service for individuals, families and young adults from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities.
This is an extremely important conversation. The All Party Parliamentary Group of The Treatment of Addiction in the UK recently highlighted that 92% of all people in treatment for addiction are recorded as white, showing an alarming inequality within the addiction treatment services, which impacts BAME communities across the entire country, particularly women of colour.
In this episode, we discussed:
The experience of BAME communities dealing with substance misuse disorders in the UK
The impact of inadequate addiction services and barriers for BAME people
The BAC-IN culturally responsive model and why it’s so important
In this episode, we discuss topics some listeners may find disturbing such as addiction, racial trauma, suicide and drug abuse. This is an extremely important conversation and we hope you enjoy listening.
