Binge drinking is the most common, costly, and deadly pattern of excessive alcohol use. This program interviews two teenagers who are recovering binge drinkers. Each recounts the details of their drinking and the related dangers including blackouts, hospitalizations, memory loss, and impacts on relationships with family and friends. Expert counselors weigh in on how alcohol binging has become an epidemic problem among teenagers. They share information on how alcohol damages the brain and can lead to various related health issues including addiction. ER doctors talk about what they see and some of the extreme treatments they use to save teens who have passed out, blacked out or worse. This program is a very visceral, candid look at binge drinking from teenagers who have experienced it firsthand and have recovered.

Includes a PDF Teacher’s Resource Book with printable activities and fact sheets to reinforce the video’s content.
