This hard-hitting program reveals the truth about teens who engage in drinking games and put themselves at risk for alcohol poisoning, overdose and death. Viewers hear the story of Scott, a smart, athletic 15-year-old who died from alcohol poisoning after playing a popular drinking game at a friend’s house. In another segment, Dr. O’Brien, an emergency room physician, describes the harsh medical procedures that occur when a teen is brought to the hospital after binge drinking. The program also travels to a renowned research brain lab at the University of California, where brain scans clearly show the neurological damage that can occur when teens consume alcohol. This program dispels the myth that alcohol and drinking games are no big deal for teens. ©2011 CC
