          Michele says that when her 33-year-old daughter, Stephanie, moved out of the sober living facility where she was staying after completing residential treatment at Hannah’s House at Origins Behavioral Healthcare on South Padre Island, she packed up all her belongings, left New Jersey, and moved to Texas to be with her.

          “I drink because of you,” Stephanie tells her mother. “I was fine until you came to Texas.”
