This fast-paced video for teens dramatizes how prescription and over-the-counter drugs can be just as potent and addictive as illicit drugs like cocaine and heroin. We take a close look at the do's, don'ts, and dangers of these medicines including the potentially deadly impact of drugged driving. Students learn how abuse of OTC drugs can lead to addiction, overdose and even death. They also learn to read and heed warnings against mixing medicines together and that drugs should only be used by the person for whom they are prescribed.
22 minute DVD, teacher's resource book, student handouts, pre/post test and bonus lesson plans in digital format.
