James, who asked to only be identified by his middle name, tried Oxycontin for the first time when he was in college. "We all know how this narrative goes — A young, healthy, normal person finds drugs and essentially starts to ruin their life." James got sober, but his brother didn't.

This story was produced by Matt Pelsor. On Monday, Dec. 17, at 9 p.m. tune into WFYI for an hour-long special on these stories.
