A Conversation with David Sheff
Moderated by WISC-TV investigative journalist Adam Schrager

David Sheff is a journalist and author of Clean: Overcoming Addiction and Ending America’s Greatest Tragedy, the follow-up to his New York Times best seller, Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction. Beautiful Boy, published in 2008, was based on his article, “My Addicted Son,” which appeared in the New York Times Magazine and won an award from the American Psychological Association for “outstanding contribution to the understanding of addiction.” Clean is the result of the years Sheff spent investigating the disease of substance use disorder and America’s drug problem, which he sees as the greatest public health challenge of our time.
