Dorothy says there’s a history of addiction in her family. She says she’s a recovering addict, and her sister, Denise, also admits she was involved with drugs “at a very young age.” Denise says she sees her 17-year-old daughter, Tanyadawn, “headed down that path.”

Dorothy claims that Tanyadawn, who’s currently on probation for assaulting another girl, has been drinking and disappearing for days at a time with her friends. She and Denise both say they’re concerned the teenager could end up going back to jail if she gets caught violating the terms of her release.
