A rebellious 17 year old is increasingly getting into trouble, doing drugs, and hiding events from his parents. As things spiral further out of control, his parents turn to an organization called “Toughlove” for help. There they learn that it sometimes is necessary to turn your back on your child and allow him to accept the consequences of his actions.

Nice to see the great Piper Laurie and the gorgeous Jason Patric way back when. Not happy when the dad said that it doesn’t matter why Gary took drugs. Of course it matters; that’s how you find a way out. Find out why you got in. Deal with the actual problem, not just the manifestation of it.
