Teen drug abuse isn’t limited to illicit drugs. Many OTC (over-the- counter) drugs are misused by kids—from cold remedies to pain killers to diet pills. This program explores the most common abuses of OTC drugs and shows the chemical, biological, and psychological damage that can result from abusing these ordinary drugs. Students will also hear a no-nonsense message from a district attorney describing the severe legal consequences teens can receive if found driving or committing a crime while under the influence of these substances.
