Does anyone remember "Pharmakon", a British series about drug addiction aired on HBO in the late 90s or early millenium?

I remember seeing a series on HBO in the late 90s or early millenium called "Pharmakon" about drug addiction. I haven't been able to find it anywhere on imdb.com or the internet. 

A scene I remember is an actress that looks like the one who was in Modjo's "Lady" video, who was addicted to drugs. There was another scene where a drug addicted couple to a meeting and the guy starts to freak out and leaves when the speaker mentions the underlying causes of drug addiction. His girlfriend asks him why he stepped out, he denied it by saying he couldn't breathe in there and needed fresh air, but then his girlfriend told him the truth that it was because they were speaking the truth and he didn't want to hear that. 

I know the name of the series, but just wanted to know if anyone else saw it or has seen it? Thanks very much.
