Film presentation and discussion on Alcohol and Drug effects on the Teenage Brain
********** CANCELLED *********
This multimedia film presentation is designed to help you see first-hand how alcohol affects teens. You will also learn why alcohol seems to harm younger brains more profoundly than older ones, both in short term and long term, brain’s plasticity, impairing memory, coordination and motivation and causing addiction. This video delivers a strong caution to teens considering any use of alcohol.

Human Relations Media produces relevant and compelling videos about the lives, choices, issues, health and well-being of today’s teenagers.
