Based on true events. On the edges of Las Vegas, 17-year-old Andrew's life is spiraling out of control. Unable to cope with the loss of his father, Andrew's descent into drugs and violence is gaining momentum, and the once promising young man is now headed for self-destruction. Andrew's mother, helpless to control her son and fighting an addiction of her own, refuses to watch idly as her only child destroys himself. As a last resort, she hires a private company to forcibly kidnap and confine him in a locked-down and corrupt psychiatric hospital. As Andrew is subjected to the secret physical and emotional abuses of the program, something inside him is re-awakened. He must somehow get free to save what's left of his life, but to do that, he knows he must first face his own demons head-on. Written by

It's hard to believe that "Self-Medicated" was created by a director with no prior experience other than film school. This story makes you pull out your hair rooting for the hero, Andrew, to "get his act together." Yet his personal pain is a bigger hurdle than any IQ test, school exam or police barricade. Watching it, I was taken on his ride and hoping for any resolution that would make him come clean; he does, thankfully, come around, through a 'Frank Capra-style' encounter with a stranger. Drug abuse, denial and repression is an important topic for parents and children; this film faces it with truth and tears. Watching what other stories Monty Lapica tells in his career will be exciting.
