Elaine was using both drugs and alcohol by age 11. She was removed from her home because her mother was physically abusing her and was mentally ill. As an adult, Elaine too lost custody of her children. She could not break the multi-generational cycle of abuse alone. Elaine’s journey back began at Partners, where she played on the floor with her youngest son and learned to be a healthy and nurturing parent.
