The road to recovery has been a different one for Mike's wife, Darla, who is Skyping in from the Phoenix House Mother and Child inpatient treatment program in Long Island, New York. "I'm going to be honest: It hasn't been easy," she says. "But I'm taking it one day at a time, and I'm just happy to be drug-free."

Though Darla lives with Cayden and sees Mike every two weeks, she says being separated from family is extremely hard. "I hope [we will be together] soon, because I really miss my family," she says. "I just miss being a mother to them."

Lisa says that when the Hawks reunite, there will be a new set of challenges to face. "They have enabled each other for so many years," she says. "When they're in their own separate facilities, it's easy to focus on themselves and their recovery. But once they come together, it's a different scenario."
