BINGE DRINKING: Facts and Consequences DVD
Kids always think adults exaggerate about alcohol and drugs. But the truth is that drinking too much alcohol too fast is deadly. Drinking to get drunk or binge drinking is a common occurrence among teens. Experts in the field present the hard facts teens need to know about alcohol's toxicity, and their vulnerability. Real teens talk about: how to handle peer pressure to drink; the effect of drinking on relationships; the ineffectiveness of alcohol for stress reduction; loss of trust with parents; and the negative effect drinking has on school work. Dramatic accounts from two teens, one who was almost raped and one who almost died while drinking heavily, bring home the seriousness of binge drinking.
