Bethany says she hasn’t been able to quit using heroin, even after a recent medical crisis that landed her in a medically-induced coma and forced her to have open-heart surgery to remedy the damage done by her years-long IV drug habit. Her family has expressed their anger, sadness, and frustration over Bethany’s continued drug use, and say they believe heroin is more important to her than they are.

Bethany is referred to Hannah House by Origins, a female-only - a dual diagnosis residential treatment center.
