New Discussion Guide for “Beautiful Boy”


We are pleased to partner with Amazon Studios and serve as a resource for the new film, Beautiful Boy, which premieres nationwide this November.

Based on the memoirs “Beautiful Boy” by our friend, David Sheff, and “Tweak” by his son, Nic Sheff, the film follows the harrowing experience of meth addiction and recovery through a father’s and family’s eyes.

We created a discussion guide to accompany the film, in the hopes that it will foster discussion about substance use and provide insight into how families address addiction both in the film and in real life. After viewing the film, use the questions and the resources to guide a conversation in your own family.
