A woman who moved into a new downtown Toronto YWCA that is meant to be a safe haven for recovering addicts says the daily struggle with her addiction has been made more difficult because she's being exposed to drug use.

The $80-million apartment building on Elm Street opened in May, and Analee Hopkins took part in the opening ceremonies.

Hopkins feels her new life is in jeopardy after she saw crack being smoked near the building, and she discovered a crack pipe on the ground.
