While in Richland County, Lisa also met Merry, a pregnant 24-year-old addicted to heroin. Merry started shooting up when she was 17, and she says she can't sleep through the night without waking up to use. During Lisa's visit, Merry decided it was time to get help, but she had a hard time  finding a facility that would accept a woman who was pregnant.

Seabrook House, a New Jersey rehabilitation facility that specializes in detoxing pregnant women, offered to take Merry in. Though hesitant, Merry agreed to check in. "I'm ready to go," she said.
