Jamison Monroe, Founder of Newport Academy and Newport Academy Day School, Brings Critically Acclaimed Addiction Documentary to Newport Beach Civic Center

"Behind The Orange Curtain" Producer and Addiction Pioneer Jamison Monroe Aligns With Fusion Academy & Learning Center to Raise Awareness During National Recovery Month

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 11, 2013) - Newport Academy founder and adolescent addiction treatment pioneer Jamison Monroe proudly announced today that his team will be screening their critically acclaimed documentary, Behind The Orange Curtain, on September 25th, 2013 at the Newport Beach Civic Center. The event is free for the public and registration details are available by clicking this link.

Following the 7:00pm screening will be an intimate panel discussion hosted by Jamison Monroe, the film's Executive Producer and adolescent addiction expert, and featuring interventionist Brodie Seagrave and Founder of Rock 2 Recovery, Wesley Geer. Monroe, a regular network news contributor concerning addiction and a global advocate for proper adolescent addiction treatment, is one of the critically praised documentary's producers and a champion for putting an end to the prescription drug abuse epidemic that's ravaging our country's homes, schools and communities.

"We could never have imagined how well received Behind The Orange Curtain has been in towns across the United States; however, having an opportunity to bring the film back home to Orange County is truly a full-circle moment," said Jamison Monroe, Founder of Newport Academy. Monroe added, "The level of prescription drug abuse in the United States has reached epidemic proportions and while Behind The Orange Curtain is reflective of a global problem, the film was born here in Orange County and this community is still in dire need of help, which is why it was critically important for us to not just show the film, but also to host a panel discussion to explore ways the community can take action."
