Product ID: DRG-012
Price:   $79.95
 
Quantity:   


Contrary to what you might think, taking some pills from the family medicine cabinet is neither a safe or legal way to get high.  Although they're manufactured by pharmaceutical companies and not produced illegally on the streets, prescription and over-the-counter medications that you might be tempted to try can harm you, and even kill you.

Learning objectives for this DVD are:

  • Looking at some prescription and over-the-counter drugs that are being widely abused
  • Getting the facts about the dangers of taking prescription and over-the-counter drugs
  • Exploring the effects of abusing depressants such as Xanax and Topamax
  • Illustrating the dangers of abusing the muscle relaxant, Soma
  • Learning about the inappropriate use of the prescription painkiller, Vicodin
  • Exploring the dangers of the stimulant abuse, focusing on Ritalin and Adderall
  • Examining the dangers of Dextromethorphan, which is the most common ingredient in over-the-counter cold medicines
  • Discussing the consequences of drug use
  • Learning ways to seek out help for a drug abuse problem
