The drugs represent just one aspect of the care he requires, a burden that largely falls upon his parents, Abraham Rivera Berrios and Gladys Fuentes Lozada, who adopted him when he was a baby given just weeks to live. Now 35, Rivera Fuentes spends most days in his room in the family's modest teal-colored house in Toa Alta, a town about 20 miles (32 km) west of the U.S. Caribbean territory's capital San Juan.
