Abstract:

People who begin drinking before age 15 are four times more likely to develop alcoholism than those who begin at age 21. This program focuses on three teenagers-Trisha, ChiQuita, and Matt-as they candidly reflect on their first tastes of alcohol, how they got hooked on getting drunk, and how they finally summoned the strength to stop drinking, once and for all. Interviews with experienced addiction counselors stress easy availability and societal acceptance of drinking as the main reasons alcohol abuse is so popular with middle school and high school students, while onscreen lists spell out the hard facts of alcohol abuse. The need to deal with feelings, not run from them, is emphasized as well. "I'm in recovery now and things are going real good for me, actually," says Matt. "When I have feelings now, I'm not afraid to feel them anymore.
