North Walsham group set up to support mums with drug-addict sons and daughter
A support group has been set up in North Walsham to show the mums of drug addicts that they are 'not alone'.
Lost Mums, which meets once a month in the town, has been set up by a mother whose son has been taking drugs for a number of years.
The woman, who did not want to be identified, said: 'I have decided to do this as my son has been on drugs for some time now. I have realised that no-one really understands unless they are going through the same.
'My son no longer lives at home and I am always trying to work out why this has happened to me.'
She added: 'This has made me realise that there must be other mums out there in a similar situation. We as parents have done nothing wrong as this is a decision our child has made.

She said she had received support from the Matthew Project in Cromer, while the monthly meetings were being funded by the Griffon Area Partnership.
