Beautiful Boy

  • MPAA rating: R

Based on a true story of a drug-addicted teenager whose parents divorced at an early age. The boy finally got addicted to crystal meth. As a counselor I have been in rehabilitation since I was 24 years old, first working with Nicky Cruz Halfway Houses and many others around the country. I felt very close to the young man in this story and saw and worked with many like him and also many young women too. Luckily, this young man somehow—through what he writes in his book as a miracle—escapes this lifestyle and has been clean for 8 years now. But most do not escape this lifestyle and end up on the streets as homeless vagabonds seeking the next fix. I also understand the problems of divorce with children, in which many of these addicted drug abusers are from. I have started two programs myself—Homeless Is Not My Choice and Personality Integration Rehabilitation Program—to try to help those that God sends me who really want to be helped; Steve Carell, Timothée Chalamet
