One of the newest and most frightening trends in teen drug experimentation are so-called "pharm parties"â€”where teens gather at someone's home, drop an array of pharmaceuticals (like Vicodin, Oxycontin or Xanax) into a bowl, then consume handfuls of this dangerous "trail mix." This eye-opening program allows viewers to hear from teens who nearly died after participating in pharm parties, as well as medical experts who identify the dangers of taking any medicines not specifically prescribed for you. Narcotics officers with first hand experience of pharm party overdoses give vivid descriptions of documented incidents. Viewers also learn what really happens when a human stomach is pumped as a last resort to avoid drug overdose. Program clearly demonstrates the extreme dangers of this rapidly escalating form of prescription drug abuse.
Includes: DVD, teacher's resouce book and student handouts with pre/post test.
