Kayini Wilson began her spiral into addiction at the age of 12. She says drugs were a way to cope with circumstances in her life. By ninth grade, Wilson had dropped out of high school.
In 2017, Wilson was charged for selling Roxicodone, Xanax, and Marijuana. She transitioned from incarceration to Marie’s House, a recovery program in Wayne, West Virginia, where she has been learning new ways to process life’s struggles and develop new coping skills.
During her stay at Marie’s House, she plans on going to college and completing a degree that would someday help her realize her dream of opening a pet rescue facility.
