Vanessa is a 37-year-old single mother of two children – and a recovering heroin addict. Her addiction began shortly after the premature birth of our first child when she was prescribed with Percocet to help her with normal post-delivery pain. But that addiction expanded to cocaine. And then heroin. And it ultimately consumed her life. But Vanessa found the help she needed at Ohio Valley Physicians (formerly Appalachian Health Services) in Huntington. And she’s now proud to tell her story of recovery.
