MILWAUKEE -- Meta House received a big donation on Wednesday, March 15th. The Medical Society of Milwaukee Foundation donated more than $10,000 to the organization.
Meta House helps women reclaim their lives from drug and alcohol addiction.
A former heroin addict talked about what the organization means to her.
"I was lost. I was completely lost. To me, heroin was the end all. I was going to die and I when I got sent to Meta House, they came at me with any and every resource I needed," Christine Hall said.
The money was raised during the Medical Society's annual awards dinner.
Meta House officials said the money will help fund one-on-one counseling for 20 women for 12 weeks.
