Grades 6-12.
Alcohol kills more than five times the number of people killed by cocaine, heroin, and every other illegal drug combined. Yet for today’s teens, alcohol is the number one drug of choice. Many think it’s cool to drink as much as they can in social situations involving peers and few, if any, think about the consequences. Topics covered include: how drinking impairs a person’s coordination, vision, and reaction time, how the brain and other organs suffer lasting damage from alcohol use, how a drunk person really drives, and how drinking can lead to spending months in a rehabilitation center. The program culminates in a realistic simulation of the “deaths” of three participants who got into a car with a fourth who was driving drunk. The teens watch videotape of their parents’ reaction to the news, the driver is “booked” and sent to prison, the three victims visit the coroner’s office to learn of the fatal injuries each suffered in the crash, and listen as their parents read farewell tributes to their children. 30 minutes. Copyright 1999.
