Fred Barry acknowledges his triumphant addiction over the past 20 years with his visit to the private Castle Craig Rehabilitation Clinic in the Scottish Borders.

Barry, 66, says recovering from alcoholism is the best thing that has happened in his life, and he is now a cellist, music teacher, husband and father.

When his son Adam started his battle with addiction, he sent him to the same clinic in the hope that he would be cured of his addiction.

But on May 6, 2021, Adam died in his bedroom after allegedly having a seizure, or a sudden increase in electrical activity in the brain, caused by alcohol withdrawal symptoms. He was not more than thirty-two years old.
