Normal turned to PTSD and a substance abuse nightmare for Jenny the instant a taxi struck her, catapulting her thirty feet across a busy New York City street. Jenny is one of the lucky ones to have survived the drug rehabilitation system, which routinely fails those at risk. Her story is multiplied across the US in the wrecked lives and torn-apart families of hundreds of thousands of Jennies. Saving Jenny is the story of a mother and daughter’s long painful journey from tragedy, through opioid addiction, toward healing. Its cautionary tale sheds light on drug dependency, sexual violation and exploitation, misdiagnosed psychological and physical injuries. It exposes a healthcare industry focused more on profits than care, which routinely fails those in its keeping. We see firsthand the abuse, negligence, malpractice, illegal and illicit activities going on in rehab facilities. We hear about the complicity of Big Pharma, insurance companies, and healthcare providers in these schemas. Beyond an expose´, this book offers practical and radical solutions to the countless individuals and families affected by opioid addiction and trauma. People need physical, psychological, social, and spiritual support to experience true healing.
