#16160/2003  ADDICTED TEENS SERIES (4 Programs)
This series consists of four 30 minute parts: ADDICTED TEENS: LEGAL HIGHS Legal highs are man-made substances/chemicals and strong stimulants that have similar effects to illegal drugs like cocaine, cannabis or ecstasy. They are sometimes called club drugs or new psychoactive substances (NPS) and provide physical, emotional and hallucinogenic effects and are marketed as a legal high. ADDICTED TEENS: DRUG ADDICTION So what is it about drugs that can take you down a path of self-destruction and self-hate? Why would someone take drugs in the first place and why do some users get addicted to drugs and some don’t? How does addiction happen? This documentary series takes an in-depth look at real people, telling their real stories of addiction, what happened to them and how hard it was for them to turn their lives around. ADDICTED TEENS: HEROIN ADDICTION Heroin is an extremely addictive Opioid drug that is synthesized from Morphine. Heroin can be snorted, smoked, or injected and usually comes in a white or brown powder substance. It is estimated that almost a quarter of all people who use Heroin once become addicted. A young person who might think twice about putting a needle in his arm may more readily smoke or sniff the same drug. But this is falsely reassuring and may give one the idea that there is less risk. The truth is that heroin in all its forms is dangerous and addictive. ADDICTED TEENS: ECSTASY ADDICTION What is called Ecstasy today can contain a wide mixture of substances from LSD, cocaine, heroin, amphetamine and methamphetamine, to rat poison, caffeine and dog deworming substances. Despite the cute logos dealers put on the pills, this is what makes Ecstasy particularly dangerous, a user never really knows what he is taking. Ecstasy most commonly comes in pill form but can also be injected and taken in other ways. Liquid Ecstasy is actually GHB, a nervous system depressant - a substance that can also be found in drain cleaner, floor stripper and degreasing solvents!Grades 8 to 12
