Sparta - The movie "Beautiful Boy" will be shown at at 7 p.m. at The Newton Theatre on Monday, Nov. 19, and Tuesday, Nov. 20, at 234 Spring Street in Newton. The film handles the important and relevant topic of addiction. Teenager Nicolas Sheff seems to have it all; good grades, and he's editor of the school newspaper. He is an actor, artist, and athlete. When Nic's addiction to meth threatens to destroy him, his desperate father does whatever he can to save his son and his family. The screenplay is based on two memoirs, that of the father and of the son: Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction and Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines. The storyline will especially resonate with families facing the struggles of addiction and its impact on families, and is timely considering the state and nation's crisis of addiction.

The Center for Prevention and Counseling is partnering with The Newton Theatre in showing the film and the Center will have an information table at the event on Nov. 19 and Nov. 20, as well as a 10-minute presentation in the lobbby. They will also be handing out important materials and interacting with the public on this important topic.

The Center is a 501-(c)(3) non-profit agency located in Newton, and it strives to promote hope, health and recovery among all people by creating an environment that is safe and free from the effects of substance abuse and addiction.
