Excuse Me for Living

Dan Topler is a rich, smart, suicidal twenty-something who dropped out of medical school to pursue his own drug habit. After a suicide attempt on the George Washington Bridge lands him in an upscale rehabilitation clinic, Dr. Jacob Bernstein takes him under his wing. The doctor issues these commands: obey the no-drugs rules, and join the geriatric temple men's group he leads or face incarceration. Dan's prep school friends continue to lure Dan to bacchanals. Dan can't resist the drugs, booze, and women, until he becomes smitten with Laura, Dr. Bernstein's daughter. Resolving to turn his life around, he confronts his friends and begins to listen at his group sessions, realizing he has more to offer and to learn than he ever knew.
