What happened to Marie?

Age: 19

Marie was trafficked starting at age 16.  Her pimp threatened to kill her family if she didn’t cooperate to go out and make him money.  This continued for 3 years until she was picked up by law enforcement.

Now, Marie participates in a rehabilitation program and has reunited with her family, but suffers from constant flashbacks, severe depression, and has attempted suicide.
