Shelly Sprague returns to join Bob Forrest and Dr. Drew. Becky Savage lost two of her four sons in one night to acute alcohol and oxycodone overdose. Nick, 19, who had just finished his first year of college died alongside Jack, 18, who had just graduated from high school. The two were celebrating with their friends when they made the choice to take this deadly combination at a party. Determined to save other parents from experiencing a similar tragedy, Becky started the 525 Foundation. The foundation is named for the boys’ hockey numbers, 5 and 25. Becky is actually a nurse, which makes this even more upsetting – it can happen to anyone.
