A former prisoner and drug addict has told ITV News that accessing support when he left prison saved his life.
Keith W said he didn't like the term "supervision" but described his experience leaving prison and immediately being arrested again for drug offences before he accessed ex-prisoner support services to help him beat his drug addiction.
"It is absolutely imperative to have support...If you ask 90% of addicts then they will say they want to live their life drug free and clean but I stay clean through a fellowship of other addicts."
