  • Favorable comments from addicts and non-addicts.

Addicted (48 Hrs)

  • Excellent content but too mature for my 6th graders.

Addiction Disease

  • Very informative.
  • One person said "the lightbulb came on on how alcoholism is a disease vs. a choice". Never "got it" before. Experienced staff person had several myths dispelled. Good stuff!
  • Good info--a little "dry" in presentation.

Addiction and Mental Illness

  • Insightful to hear clinicians and clients duscuss the issues of diagnosis and treatment for substance abuse and mental illness.

Addiction and the Elderly

  • It was entertaining, but somewhat lacking in information.

Advertising Alcohol : Calling the Shots Update

  • Adult oriented video that looks at unhealthy messages from the media regarding alcoholism. Very good.
  • Really stimulates discussion.
  • I use this video in a (12th grade) class I teach called "Culture and Gender". I have found it very useful in the analysis of gender depiction of men and women.
  • This is a terrific video to introduce students (college) to the problem of alcohol abuse and alcohol advertising.

Alcohol and Your Body

  • A good video on the basics of alcohol's effect on the body.

Alcohol, Drugs and the Brain

  • Nice overview. Actually enjoyable, yet educational.
  • Dr. Pursch is a bit hard to understand at first, but easier as the video progresses. Info and visuals are good. Personally, I like Pursch's dry humor.

Alcohol : True Stories

  • This is by far the most excellent film I have seen on alcohol for teens.

  • Consistently effective presentation.

Changing Lives: Close to Home

Choices : Stories From the Maine State Prison

  • Shows the reality of poor choices.

Criss Cross

  • Good for young people and their parents to recognize phases in using/abusing alcohol.
  • Great message - corny acting.

  • This gets peoples attention!
  • This video is so effective, I'm probably going to wear it out.
