After enduring a series of abusive relationships and using drugs as an escape from her misery, Sonya was homeless, helpless and completely hopeless. When she entered F&CS’s Women in Recovery (WIR), her daughter, Arianna,– who was a teenager at the time – was headed down the same dark path.

Hear mother and daughter talk about how WIR not only saved them from addiction and incarceration, but helped them become a family once more

F&CS’s Women in Recovery (WIR) is an intensive addiction and trauma treatment program for women involved in the criminal justice system. Diverting women from prison and keeping families together can help break the intergenerational cycle of trauma, addiction and incarceration.

WIR saved Sonya from a long-term prison sentence and a life of addiction. But years of drug abuse had already done its damage to her family. It wasn’t long after Sonya graduated from WIR that her daughter, Arianna, also found herself in the program.

Watch the video above to learn how WIR but both mother and daughter on a path to recovery and helped to rebuild the family bond.
