Nic And David Sheff Of 'Beautiful Boy' On Stemming Teen Addiction

David and Nic Sheff are the father and son pair portrayed in the film "Beautiful Boy," based on David Sheff's memoir by the same name and Nic Sheff's account of his struggles with addiction, called "Tweak: Growing Up On Methamphetamines." The film dives into the depths of addiction, relapse and recovery that the headlines and the numbers don't always show.

Now the Sheffs are taking their mission of addiction education even further with their new book aimed at teens, called "High: Everything You Want to Know About Drugs, Alcohol and Addiction." Jim Braude was joined by Nic and David Sheff.
