Alcohol is the most abused drug in the United States. It is the leading cause of automobile accidents; it is a significant factor in the incidence of suicide every year; and it causes irreparable damage to the alcohol abuser’s health.
A young boy, tempted to take his first drink, wrestles with the decision on a deserted baseball diamond. There he encounters a spectral ball player, who guides him through the decision-making process.
Alcohol: What About It? helps students become aware of immediate and far-reaching effects of alcohol use.
It explores these topics:
• What about the effects of alcohol use and abuse?
• What about strategies for dealing with stress, conflict, or negative feelings?
• What about decision-making, problem-solving, and assertiveness skills?
• What about the value of supportive personal relationships at home, at school, and in the community?
This positive program stresses the values of self-reliance, self-care, personal responsibility, and individualism in the face of choices that affect health and well-being. "... the program teaches children the steps to making good choices, and how to stick by them. This valuable life skill works for much more than just alcohol use."
