9780932551665: Jeffrey's Journey: Healing a Child's Violent Rages

Jeffrey’s Journey is a remarkable success story about a loving family’s refusal to give up on a deeply troubled child. Written by his mother and grandmother, the book chronicles the struggle of a very young boy diagnosed with severe behavioral problems, including compulsive and oppositional defiance disorders. By age seven, Jeffrey had seen multiple doctors and been prescribed over a dozen prescription medications to control his violent rages but nothing had helped. Then state officials gave Jeffrey’s mother an ultimatum: find something to manage your son or lose him to institutional lock-down. Extensive research convinced this conservative, Christian mother that medical marijuana could be her son’s last hope. Working with a courageous pediatrician and a patient’s cooperative, she discovered that cannabis calmed her son, allowing him to function so well that he was able to attend school and enjoy friends.

Jeffrey’s Journey details the success of Jeffrey’s treatment, Debbie’s court battle defending her son’s right to unconventional medicine and the threat to Jeffrey’s on-going care by federal raids on California’s medical marijuana dispensaries.

Includes material from the pediatrician who supervised Jeffrey’s marijuana therapy, letters from other struggling parents who heard about Jeffrey’s story on 48 Hours, and a resource section.

From the Publisher:

What People Are Saying About Jeffrey’s Journey

"This is a remarkable account of one mother’s love for her son and her courage to question conventional thinking in medicine and politics. Readers will take strength and hope from the Jeffries’ story. I certainly did."

- Montel Williams

"Jeffrey's Journey is a compelling first-hand account of the successful use of medical marijuana to treat a serious behavioral disorder in a child. This engaging case report offers an honest look at conventional psychiatric medications, and sheds new light on the untapped possibilities of cannabis as an alternative."

- Andrew Weil, MD

"This is a book that should be read by parents, healthcare practitioners and policy makers—each of whom wields enormous influence in the national debate about the legal use of medical marijuana and all of whom will find something captivating and persuasive in this family’s story."

- Joycelyn Elders, Former U.S. Surgeon General
