The Power of Choice: DRUGS & ALCOHOL - Part 1 (dvd)
From the 12 volume DVD series THE POWER OF CHOICE
- To stimulate teens to think critically about their choices involving drugs and alcohol.
- To help them see that they have the power to make those choices for themselves, regardless of any social pressures they may feel.
- To make them aware of how drugs and alcohol can take over their power of choice and reduce the amount of control they have over their own lives.
In this program, comedian/youth counselor Michael Pritchard encourages teenagers to come to grips with the question of what to do when "just say no" and "just say yes" just won't do. Students from high schools in Atlanta and Albuquerque talk openly and honestly about the choices (good and bad) they have made with alcohol and drug use. As one teenager relates, "I look back, it felt good then. Now I could cry. Once it wore off, I had to face myself again."
