New York, NY, May 30, 2013The Partnership at, the national nonprofit leading The Medicine Abuse Project, a multi-year initiative aimed at preventing half a million teens from abusing prescription and over-the-counter medicines over the next five years, is partnering with author and parent advocate, David Sheff. He will be the featured guest on the next “Meet The Parents Hour,” a popular, live Facebook chat and Q&A session taking place onWednesday, June 5th from 12 p.m. EST/9 a.m. PST.

David Sheff is the author of the New York Times best-selling memoir “Beautiful Boy” about his son Nic’s decade-long struggle with addiction. His new book, “Clean: Overcoming Addiction and Ending America’s Greatest Tragedy,” offers a look at drug abuse and treatment, based on the latest scientific evidence and his own expertise as an investigative journalist.

“I’ve had the opportunity to communicate with countless people who are facing their own or a loved one’s addiction. Most I’ve met are parents, who, like me, know about the devastation of drug misuse and addiction because they’ve lived it in their families,” said David Sheff. “With addiction come many sad stories, but also hopeful ones. I’m honored to join The Partnership at for Wednesday’s chat. I hope it will provide an opportunity for more of us – parents worried about their children and drugs as well as those whose kids are using or addicted – to support one another.”
