2019 Year in Review: Center on Addiction
We merged to empower families to support loved ones, advance effective addiction care, and shape public policies that prevent and treat addiction as a public health issue.
David Sheff, journalist and The New York Times best-selling author of “Beautiful Boy” and “Clean,” was our guest host for our very first Facebook Live Thursday, June 16. He shared his personal story of being the father of a child who has struggled with substance use, read an excerpt from his book, and answered our community’s questions.

David is a longtime friend of the Partnership and a champion to many of the families we work with each and every day. His book, “Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction” is a must-read for any parent. Production for a 2018 film adaptation of the book is underway and will star Steve Carell, Timothee Chalamet, Amy Ryan and Maura Tierney.
We are grateful to David for his time sharing his story and insight with our community. To learn more about his work, visit davidsheff.com.
