Zack was just 13-years-old when he was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. After suffering for years, his physicians prescribed OxyContin to help him cope with the excruciating pain. After several years, Zack turned to street drugs. In 2016, Zack enrolled in, and successfully completed, a year long drug and substance abuse program. He was a model patient, helping to coach and lead other patients in the program. Just 10 days after completion, Zack ultimately succumbed to his addiction and tragically overdosed at home.
