In February 2013 Blenheim committed to actively campaign on behalf of people stigmatised by alcohol and drug use by actively presenting people with drug and alcohol problems in a more positive light rather than characterising them by their drug of choice and how they consume it. Blenheim decided to do the 50 stories to mark our 50th year because Blenheim is about the people we help. There was a need to show a wider audience what Blenheim does and the impact we have on peoples lives.
They are stories to inspire, they are the stories that remind us to feel, hear and see the often difficult lives people have and realise that there is always hope and the possibility of a better future. Blenheim will be forever grateful to the brave people who let us tell their moving stories.
