Mother, Daughter and Doctor

 Anna's (name changed) family relocated to Defiance for employment. Soon after arriving, Anna's family was informed that her insulin would not be covered under their health insurance. With funding from UWDC, Ravens Care was able to assist with her medication expenses until her medical team could find other medications that would fit her needs.

“I started using IV heroin at 15, I struggled with other drugs and alcohol before that. I did not know the effects, the sickness or anything at that time. I struggled after I had my son and the effects of heroin on my life. It ended up that I lost my family and son. I was in and out of multiple rehabs, inpatient and outpatient...I ended up getting in legal trouble and went to Serenity Haven. Now, I am successfully passing drug tests and I have a good job. I have stayed sober after graduating. I am looking into independent housing and buying a car. I have my son back.”
