Popular high school students present groundbreaking information about the effects of alcohol on developing brains for middle school students.
New studies show that the brain builds its basic capacities for the future during adolescent years. Alcohol use during this time has a major impact because it disrupts the growing brain’s plasticity.
This documentary delivers the evidence that the brain continues to develop all the way until the age of 24. The message to students in this peer education video is clear: Alcohol use is neither healthy nor cool; most kids do not use it; and those who do risk irreversible damage to their developing brains.
Suitable for middle school students. Viewing time: 17 minutes. 2010.
This product is part of the Most Used, Most Abused Drug Series.
