– In a discreet clinic just outside the Kenyan capital, a recovering heroin addict named Peter holds the hand of his two-year-old daughter as he drinks a dose of methadone.
Peter’s teeth are yellow and he looks much older than 26.
“I miss nothing and wish I could totally forget it,” he says of the 14 years he was addicted to heroin. Taking the treatment means his wife has given him a second chance.
Kenya is seeing more and more addicts. The number of people injecting drugs jumped by more than 50% in the past eight years and the majority of users inject heroin, the health ministry says.
