This production totally saturates viewers with one unrelenting message: If you use dangerous drugs like alcohol, marijuana and Ecstasy, you are risking your future and your life. The video bombards teens with plain facts that are indisputable: alcohol damages the growing adolescent brain, marijuana can cause head and neck cancers as well as lung cancer, methamphetamine is one of the most addictive substances on earth, one huff from an inhalant can result in sudden death and much more. After watching this video, your students are sure to reevaluate their thoughts and behavior concerning substance abuse. Substances covered are tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, inhalants, stimulants, club drugs and performance-enhancing drugs.
video, plus teacher’s resource book, student handouts and pre/post tests in digital format
Recommended HRM video distributes several programs concerning substance abuse, and this one, as the title suggests, aims to inform you about everything you need to know on the topic in 22 minutes. It does a good job – but strictly for the junior high to high school student. The video provides an overview of alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, inhalant, stimulant, club drug and performance enhancing drug abuse. It also reviews substance abuse and the law.
Music, graphics, and narration are very high quality, professionally edited and produced. It has a smart, upbeat feel, and packs an amazing amount of information into a short period of time. The Teacher’s Resource Guide is well done, and as with other HRM programs, truly enhances the content of the video for classroom use. School media collections would be well served by this program. Instructors should note that some of the same video clips are used in other HRM video programs on substance abuse: GHB: The Facts, Club Drugs: The Real Deal and The Truth About Hallucinogens. Recommended.
