Hunter Biden Bryony Gordon's Mad World

    • Mental Health

Being an addict is a difficult thing for anybody to navigate - but Hunter Biden’s struggles with addiction were put under worldwide scrutiny when his father, Joe Biden, was running for president. Now he’s taking control of his own narrative with the publication of a brutally honest memoir. In it, he opens up about the tragedy that has befallen the Biden family - from the car crash that killed Hunter’s mother and sister, to the loss of his brother, Beau to cancer in 2015. In this powerful interview, he tells Bryony Gordon why the pain saw him turn to alcohol and drugs, but how - despite his best efforts - his family simply wouldn’t let him “disappear”. Plus, he lays out why he’s adamant that addiction should be treated as a mental health issue rather than a matter of criminal justice.
