Christiane F. struggles with relapses
Time and again the media reported on relapses of Christiane Felscherinow, who says she wants to keep her drug addiction under control with the help of a methadone program.
In 1996 she gave birth to her child Philipp in Berlin. In 2008, her custody was revoked due to a relapse. Two years later she got it back, but left her son with his foster family so as not to tear him away from his new environment.
The re is a fine line between them,” she writes. Part of the proceeds from the autobiography went to the “Christiane F. Foundation”, which looks after drug-addicted children and wants to offer them a way out. “We live in a society that pays homage to intoxication and despises addicts,” Felscherinow is quoted on the foundation’s website.

Christiane Felscherinow has not turned to the public since the statement.
