    What this shows is that she is a adult woman who went down the wrong path. Just because she has a father in law enforcement means nothing. No more then a Pastor who has a daughter who ends up doing drugs. Its not the parents but the influences of people around them that determines their fate.

    This just goes to show that none of us r immune from the effects of drug/alcohol abuse. It can happen to anyone. I hope this young lady receives the help she desperately needs and that her family will be able to help support her recovery.
