Teen Drug Abuse Awareness
We enjoy being involved with emotive projects – they leave you with a sense of fulfilment.
Drug abuse amongst the young touches us all, regardless of what country you’re in. We are proud of this piece of work delivered by our San Francisco office. This powerful programme illustrates the far-reaching consequences of drug and alcohol abuse on teens.
The Teen Drug Awareness programme reaches over 6,000 students annually, and was conceived and devised by us in 2009, following a tragic drug abuse accident involving a recent graduate of Monte Vista High School in Danville.
Throughout the one-hour presentation, our short films outline the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse, the physical and emotional impact it has on teens and those close to them, the choices available, and the impact those choices have on their lives. These films are interspersed with live presentations from recovering addicts and their family members, emergency services personnel and health care professionals, who recollect their experiences.
In order to make each presentation relevant to the audience, each event is localised by the use of stylised video openers and video pieces featuring students from each school.
We’re delighted that this programme was commended as a Finalist in the Educator category at the San Jose CreaTiVe Awards in February 2014.
