New research has indicated that school athletes, both male and female, are at a greater risk of abusing alcohol and steroids than non-athletes. The video and print package explain why the risk is greater (media images, advertising alcohol with sports events, peer pressure), and how knowledge about the problem can be a first step in reducing athletes' alcohol and steroid use. Interviews with coaches, teens and professional athletes highlight the problem and emphasize how alcohol use undermines sports success. The medical health deficits of steroids are clearly presented as well as eye-opening information that explains that steroid use causes breast development in boys and acne and masculine hormones in girls.
