Truth About Drinking (The) – School Version

Description

Alcohol kills more than five times the number of people killed by cocaine, heroin, and every other illegal drug combined.  Yet for teenagers, alcohol is the number one drug of choice, and many consider it “cool” to drink as much as they can in social situations involving their peers.    Students’ comprehension of the consequences of drinking are expanded and reinforced as the program’s teen drinkers experience the potential results of alcohol use from every perspective, including:  how drinking impairs a person’s coordination, vision, and reaction time; how the brain and other organs suffer lasting damage from alcohol use; how a drunk person really drives; and how drinking can lead to spending months in a rehabilitation center.  The program culminates in a realistic simulation of the “deaths” of three participants who got into a car with a fourth who was driving drunk.  (DVD)  Running Length:  30 minutes.
