Trailer for a drama about a real-life drug rehabilitation center once headquartered in Santa Monica, California. It was founded in 1958 but by the 1970s it had evolved into a cultish religion with tax-exempt status (sound familiar?). By the end of the 1980s it folded after years of scandal involving the bizarre behavior of its founder, Charles E. Dietrich (played by Edmund O'Brien in the movie). Dietrich, as his 1997 New York Times obituary documents, is the man who came up with the oft-quoted line "Today is the first day of the rest of your life."
