Addiction Specialist honoured

‘Her story of living for more than 20 years as an alcoholic is her greatest asset, she said, and uses her experience to help others who are struggling the way she did.

When the Independence Honours were announced last year, Bradshaw was one of the recipients of the Barbados Service Medal for her work in alcohol addiction and counselling.

She works as a unit support worker at the Substance Abuse Foundation that runs Verdun House, assists at Alcoholics Anonymous and has founded fellowships in other islands across the region.

Bradshaw had her first drink of alcohol at age nine, a glass of wine, and then she did not drink again until 12 years later on Christmas Day when she got drunk.’
