Sonya's drink problem resurfaces in a very public way when she hits the bottle at a council meeting.

Having fallen off the wagon in private, Sonya's drink problem is about to become public knowledge in Neighbours. At a council morning fundraiser, the Erinsborough mayor gets spectacularly drunk – and her antics are splashed all over the local press the next day.

As Toadie steps in to help his ex, who's devastated over the collapse of their marriage and the loss of a baby, he tells Sonya he wants to take custody of their daughter, Nell, until she's sober again…

Will Sonya agree and go into rehab for the sake of her little girl?
