Meet Vanisha Breault.png

Living her life and her recovery out loud is what Vanisha Breault is devoted to doing. On the cusp of that decision, her then 14 year-old daughter Eden, began her descent into the heinous and undiscriminating grasp of drug addiction. As a mother, the emotional horror, desperation and powerlessness was all consuming. There were countless attempts to get Eden help. Using every resource and tool available that she could muster, Vanisha repeatedly encountered a system ill-equipped to support the disease of addiction, leaving her precious daughter homeless, destitute and heavily dependent upon fentanyl and heroin.
