A New Beginning
by Jeffrey Stockbridge
After taking a much needed break so that I could edit and produce the Kensington Blues book and exhibition, I am happy to announce that I am getting back to work. I’ve decided to significantly broaden the scope of the project. I’ll be introducing a number of new segments including follow up interviews with past subjects, stories of recovery, collaborative reporting with journalists and Kensington Blues: Your Story, a page dedicated to re-thinking how we think about addiction. Stay tuned!

Hi my name is Debbie you have me posted in your book is just teen but I have seven years clean and I’ve been away from Kensington if you were doing follow-ups it be nice to hear a good story so if you would like to contact me my email is McConnell 9211 at gmail.com
Congratulations Debbie, it’s so good to hear someone like you made it out of there. I just lost my girlfriend this year to drugs even though I tried my best to help her. I met her 9 years ago on Kensington ave, where I was working night shift as a security guard at a car dealership. She went through various rehabs and clinics, but she just couldn’t beat her addiction. I’m so glad to hear that you’re doing well. Keep it up.
