A Rosecrance benefit supporting recovery

11:30 – 1:30 pm
JW Marriott Hotel, Chicago

Featuring David Sheff, Author of the New York Times #1 best seller, “Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction,” which was adapted into a movie in 2018.

Please join us for an inspiring event featuring David Sheff, renowned speaker, bestselling author and advocate on the US drug crisis, prevention and treatment of addiction. Sheff is the author of New York Times #1 best seller, “Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction,” which recounts Sheff’s harrowing struggle to help his son, Nic, overcome his methamphetamine addiction. Sheff’s ongoing research and reports on the science of addiction earned him a place on Time Magazine’s list of the world’s most influential people. David speaks nationally on his experience, strength, and hope as a parent of a struggling teen and an advocate of mental health and drug use prevention.

Proceeds from the 2019 Launch to Life Benefit will support life-saving programs at Rosecrance in the Chicagoland area. Contact events@rosecrance.org for more information.
