What had happened to my son? To our family? What did I do wrong? These are the heart-rending questions of a father in sorrow and distress. At this very special event Sheff will reflect on the heartbreaking story of his son, Nic, and the impact his addiction had on their family. Based on his international best-selling memoir “Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction,” Sheff ‘s honest reflection and wisdom make for an extraordinary program. It’s the story of an athlete and honor student, his descent into addiction and the optimism of multiple trips to rehab. From the early warning signs, to denial, to fear, to grief, to hope, this is a story of powerful and eternal parental love.
Sheff will speak at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 24, at Glenbard North High School, 990 N. Kuhn Road in Carol Stream.
This program will be repeated at noon Wednesday, Jan. 25, at the Marquardt School District 15 administration center, 1860 Glen Ellyn Road in Glendale Heights. CPDUs are available.
