About the Book

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 U.S. in the shattered lives and torn-apart families of millions of Jennies. Saving Jenny is the narration of a mother and daughter’s long painful journey from tragedy, through opioid addiction, toward redemption. Its cautionary tale sheds light on drug dependency, suicidal depression, sexual exploitation and misdiagnosed mind disorders. We discover that these are symptoms of much larger societal issues: the decimation of the family, childhood traumatization, and a culture devoid of human values. These pages unmask a mental health industry focused more on profits than people, which regularly betrays those in its keeping, and the complicity of Big Pharma and insurance companies in these schemas. We see firsthand the abuse, negligence and illicit activities going on in psychiatric and rehab facilities.

BEYOND AN EXPOSÉ, Saving Jenny offers practical political, economic, educational and social solutions to help the countless individuals and families afflicted by drug addiction and suicidality. Most importantly, Percy presents a new paradigm grounded in altruistic love, which utilizes both psychodynamic and spiritual resources to deliver hope and TRUE HEALING…
