Controlling her disorder

Doctors prescribed Lithium to help Sondra Sykes control her bipolar disorder, and Benadryl to help her sleep.   She attends weekly substance-abuse and relationship classes, and learned parenting skills that helped ease tensions in the family when they were first reunited.  “It’s almost like they never were taken away,” said Elizabeth Tesseo, the family's social worker. “They’re very close with her.”
