Addicts don't stop caring about the people they love.

Based on his New York Times best-selling book, Beautiful Boy: A Father's Journey Through His Son's Addiction, and his son Nic's bestseller, Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines, they tell the story from both sides of addiction in this riveting presentation.
