Missing a court appearance while on bond is a serious, serious offense. For starters, there will be no further bond until her case is heard. The bond is the "assurance that the charged will appear for every court appearance". As for the new charges, my guess is that the judge will be pretty angry when she faces him. Without further information on all that she is facing, my only advice is for you to be patient and let the process play out. Drug crimes like what you describe are usually looked at from the user-side and not the dealer-side, and she will probably get some time attached to some sort of in-custody therapy.
