Summary:
Teens & Party Drugs - Graduation from middle school to high school is a critical point for most teens and where the risk of alcohol and drug abuse rises dramatically. Many studies show that 14-year-olds are four times more likely to be offered prescription drugs and three times more likely to be offered Ecstasy or marijuana than 13-year-olds. Older teens are far more likely to encounter alcohol and drugs at parties even when parents are supervising. Raves, nightclubs, bars, dances and parties are places young people go for fun and good times. But today's "fun places" often carry an added dimension of danger. The use of Ecstasy, Roofies, Georgia Home Boy and Special K are all street names for club drugs that teenager's are using at raves and parties to get high. Prescription pills have also become popular among teens because they are easy to get and represent a more socially acceptable way of getting high than taking street drugs. Some teens, are self-medicating undiagnosed depression or anxiety, while others are using stimulants to try to get an edge on tests and studying.

Subjects Covered Include:
• What is Ecstasy?
• What are club drugs?
• Why are prescription pills just as dangerous as illegal drugs?
• Where are teen abusers of prescription drugs sharing "recipes" for getting high?
• Do some teens self-medicate undiagnosed depression or anxiety with prescription drugs?
