Overcast a heroin prevention video ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Heroin is one of the most dangerous and addictive drugs on the street. But many young people mistakenly believe that heroin is addictive only when it's injected, not when it's smoked or snorted. This eye-opening program attacks this and other myths about the drug through emotionally powerful stories told by recovering heroin addicts and family members of users. Viewers will find out why overdose is possible with each use, how easy it is to slide into addiction, and how bleak life becomes when the only thing that matters is staving off withdrawal symptoms. The video also teaches a young person how to help a friend who is using heroin

Marijuana the escape to nowhere ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Marijuana is referred to as the "baby of drugs." Over 70 million Americans have tried marijuana at least once and at least 5 million Americans smoke marijuana once a week. The chemical in marijuana, known as THC, travels to the brain and disrupts memory, slows down movement, and results in pleasurable feelings people often experience when they smoke marijuana. This video challenges myths about marijuana by clearly stating that marijuana is addictive and that use results in physical, emotional, and spiritual consequences. It also explains to clients in simple language the pharmacology of today's more potent marijuana and shares the hope and healing of recovery
Done drinking getting straight, staying sober ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Alcohol addiction has a long-lasting effect on many individuals, as well as their families, friends, and supporters. Alcohol abuse is due to many interconnected factors; while it is not always easy to notice when the limit has been exceeded, it is especially difficult to admit it and seek help. In this compelling and hopeful video from Hazelden, teen alcoholics in recovery talk about why they started drinking, how alcohol took over their lives, what they did to get sober, and who they've become in recovery. The result is an honest look at what it means, and what it takes, for a teen to be done drinking
