It's an unfortunate reality hitting central Ohio. Mother's across the area dealing with the pull of addiction, thousands of new born’s feeling the effects.

Now a new one of a kind clinic here in Columbus aims to help those mothers and their children and hopefully save lives.

It's unquestionably Victoria Sharrett's greatest joy, being a mom.

"It is amazing. I love motherhood. There's no greater feeling in the world. That bonding with another human being, that instant love is just amazing," Sharrett told ABC6.

It's a responsibility that she takes to heart. Her four-month-old daughter, Cali Anna Bella is her main reason for staying clean.

"She was definitely my motivation. When I found out I was pregnant, that's when I was still using and that's what made me stop," said Sharrett.
