Binge Drinking: Facts and Consequences
Drinking to get drunk, or binge drinking, is a common occurrence among teens that use alcohol. Teens report many reasons for their preoccupation with drinking. For some, drinking is meant to relieve stress or help them fit in socially. For others it is used to celebrate and have a good time. In this program real teens share their reasons for drinking and the grave consequences that resulted from their behavior. Experts in the field of alcohol use present the hard facts teens need to know about alcohol’s toxicity and teen 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.SKU: 3-V-364
