When a young middle class girl leaves home for university, you’d expect her parents to be worried about her experimenting with drugs.

Little did Lauren Salmons, 30, know that it should have been her worrying about returning home to find her mum ravaged by cocaine.

After years of drinking, Sandra Salmons, 55, decided to try the Class A drug on a night out, which developed into a £1000-a-week habit.

After years of keeping her mum’s secret Lauren said enough was enough and staged an intervention, spending £28,000 to rescue her from the abyss. Sandra and Lauren join us now to talk about the addiction that almost cost the family everything.
