D’Anne Burwell’s smart, athletic son—raised in a loving and prosperous home—began abusing OxyContin as a teenager, and within a year had dropped out of college, walked out of rehab, and landed homeless on the streets. In Saving Jake, Burwell captures the crippling impact of a family disease—a husband’s anger, a daughter’s depression, an addict’s agonizing journey toward recovery. Struggling with fear, guilt, and a desperate need to protect her son, the author discovers the terrifying links between prescription-drug abuse and skyrocketing heroin use, and comes to understand that to save her child she must step back and allow him to fight for his own soul.
