(KMOV) -- A High Ridge man is back from Africa after a three month battle to get home so he could get better medical care. 

Twenty five-year old Jason Denis and his wife arrived by air ambulance on Monday.
 
They were visiting her family in Botswana in September when he suffered an accidental overdose of pain medication which caused severe brain damage.
 
His family has been working for months to raise the $150,000 necessary to bring him home and was finally successful.
 
Denis is now being treated at St. John’s Mercy Medical Center.
