Through her journey, she discovered the importance of addressing mental health in addiction treatment, which helped her understand the root of her addiction. Now, she is able to not only be there for herself, but also for her son, who has been her biggest motivation in staying clean and sober.

Her story is a testament to the power of surrender and the importance of seeking help for both addiction and mental health issues. Watch this inspiring video to hear her full story of redemption and hope.
