In Begley's "To the Temple of Tranquility...And Step On It!: A Memoir," he shares hilarious and poignant stories focusing on his relationship with his legendary father, adventures with Hollywood icons, the origins of his environmental activism, addiction and recovery as well as his lifelong search for wisdom and common ground.
Leonard Lee Buschel co-founder of Writers In Treatment said "We are excited to honor Ed Begley Jr., whose candid and revealing memoir imparts his incredible wisdom." He went on to say "The past few years have been a challenge for those in need of sobriety. By offering his humor and encouraging voice Mr. Begley has inspired those who need help to begin their path to recovery."
Writers In Treatment was founded in 2008 by author Leonard Lee Buschel and famed director Robert Downey Sr., with the mission that 'treatment works and recovery is possible.' The organization helps those suffering from alcoholism drug addiction or other self-destructive behaviors find treatment sources for their illness.
Alcohol Justice was founded in 1987 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that envisions healthy communities free of the alcohol industry's negative impact. Alcohol Justice works towards preventing the proliferation of misuse of alcohol or other related drugs as well as reducing the harms associated with populations targeted by the alcohol industry through evidence-informed advocacy and community organizing.
