A firsthand look at what it means—and what it takes—for young addicts to get clean and stay clean.

A former cast member of MTV's Real World: Chicago, Chris Beckman recounts his journey from addiction to recovery, speaking directly to the concerns of today's youth: how to go out, have fun, and be productive while in recovery, and how to turn away from social pressure to experiment with drugs and alcohol. Clean: A New Generation in Recovery Speaks Out also gives parents a realistic look at what's really going on in schools and at the mall - anywhere kids get together.
