Getting High With Dad

Streaming Video - 2002
Rate this:
This cautionary program pulls no punches as it tracks the downward spiral of a successful suburban husband and father who, at 40, becomes addicted to the drug ecstasy and ruins his family and his marriage. A powerfully unsettling firsthand account of middle-class drug abuse, the program documents Scott’s dive into the rave scene, where he encourages his teenage children to do drugs with him; his acrimonious divorce and custody battle; his arrest on drug charges; and his children’s fruitless attempt to help him get straight. The emotional devastation and brain damage resulting from drug abuse are emphasized. Viewer discretion is advised. An HBO Production. (85 minutes)
