Director Joel Schumacher was honoured by a drug and alcohol rehab organisation on Saturday (28Jun14).

The Lost Boys moviemaker, who spent years battling drug and alcohol addiction before he got clean, was feted at a gala dinner in the Hamptons, New York by Phoenix House, a non-profit rehab group.

During his speech at the event, Schumacher told the audience, "I went to a party when I was 12 and got home when I was 52. And you don't want to hear what happened in between."

He explained how he began abusing drugs as a teenager in the Big Apple before adding, "And then came the '60s and the '70s and the '80s. And I hate to say this, but it was fun. Well, it was until it wasn't."

According to the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, singer/songwriter John Forte performed at the fundraiser, which raised more than $350,000 (£218,750).
