A groundbreaking, in-depth documentary, recounting a year in the lives of pupils and staff at Northshore Recovery High—a school outside Boston that works exclusively with teens who are addicted to drugs and alcohol—is premiering tonight (Monday) on Current TV at 9pm EST. Principal Michelle Lipinski—a regular contributor to The Fix—is one of the chief subjects of the film, which also follows three of her students as they deal with recovery and drug tests on top of all the usual stresses of being teenagers. You can check out her replies to questions from Fix readers here, and take a peek at Current's trailer below:
