Jamison Monroe, Founder of Newport Academy, Brings Critically Acclaimed Addiction Documentary to the Newport Beach Film Festival

"Behind The Orange Curtain" Breaks Newport Beach Film Festival Records and Sells Out First Show in Record Time -- Second Show Added

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 10, 2012) - Newport Academy founder and adolescent addiction treatment pioneer Jamison Monroe proudly announced today that his team will be premiering their critically acclaimed and highly anticipated documentary, "Behind The Orange Curtain," on May 2nd, 2012 at the prestigious Newport Beach Film Festival. Based on a record-breaking response and a sold-out premier event, a second show has been added on May 3rd at "The Big Newport" theatre.

Monroe, a regular network news contributor about addiction and global advocate for proper adolescent addiction treatment, is one of the buzz-worthy documentary's producers and a champion for putting an end to the prescription drug abuse epidemic in Orange County.

"Being involved with the making of 'Behind The Orange Curtain' has been a life changing and cathartic experience for everyone involved and I am so proud of our filmmakers and everyone that made this film a reality," said Jamison Monroe, Founder of Newport Academy. Monroe added, "The level of prescription drug abuse in Orange County has reached epidemic proportions and finally, a film has been made that holds an unflinching mirror up to the situation and what is revealed is staggering. The fact that the premier sold-out in record time proves that Orange County is ready to face the truth about prescription drug abuse and that is our ultimate goal."

Monroe is giving away 10 free tickets to the sold-out premier. Ticket recipients will be randomly chosen from supporters who follow @newportacademy on twitter or 'like' Newport Academy on facebook and repost this release.
