La PORTE — For a La Porte County resident named Colleen, a stint in jail for drugs ended up being the best thing to ever happen to her.

While mired in drug addiction, the woman lost not only her freedom but custody of her youngest daughter. Behind bars, she was, as she put it, "lost and confused."
