Drug addiction is a disease of the brain, and teens are at highest risk for acquiring this disease. That is the startling conclusion recently arrived at by brain experts, based on the latest research findings. This program illustrates the amazingly complicated structure and function of the brain using colorful and compelling visuals and computer animations. It explains the changes to the brain caused by prolonged use of drugs such as cocaine, heroin, nicotine, alcohol and methamphetamine, and shows why voluntary drug use eventually becomes involuntary and compulsive. Studies indicate that drugs affect the developing brain more than the brain of someone more mature, thus putting teens at a higher risk of addiction. Interviews with recovering teen addicts, an addiction counselor, and brain experts and researchers give the program realism and intensity, and provide sobering thoughts to viewers.

    Meth use among teens is not just a serious issue in the mid-west and western states. With wider availability, it is now spreading across the country. This program visits Montana to see how The Meth Project was able to reduce meth usage by 63%. We also meet two ex-users who give frank and moving accounts of how their lives were nearly destroyed by the drug. Based on the Not Even Once theme, the media ad blitz was created with input from teens, who go on to own the campaign. We follow them as they create monumental artwork that covers public spaces in Paint the State. Then, to ensure the message continues, they generate widespread participation in a March Against Meth that successfully petitions state legislators at the capitol for funding. The teens passion and creativity are an inspiration, and the project has been replicated by seven other states. This program clearly shows the dangers of meth and how use can be prevented.
