I DIDN'T THINK IT WOULD HAPPEN TO ME: TRUTH ABOUT HEROIN
This video takes teens on a tour of several labs across the country including one at the University of California at San Diego where doctors are researching the effects of alcohol abuse in teenage brains. The show's young host has a scan performed on her own brain, and then has the chance to see how it compares with the brains of other teens who drink alcohol regularly. The ground-breaking studies highlighted in the video dramatically connect long-term brain damage to underage drinking. Your students will see first-hand how alcohol affects teens as young as fourteen and fifteen years old. They will also learn why alcohol seems to harm younger brains more profoundly than older ones both in short term and long term, impairing memory, coordination and motivation and causing addiction. Video delivers a strong caution to teens considering any use of alcohol. Includes Pre- and Post-Tests (2002, 23 Min) DVD
