HOW ADDICTION HIJACKS THE BRAIN

Focusing on the science behind how drugs affect the brain, this program details how adolescent brains respond to and are changed by continual drug use. As young recovering addicts share their own experiences, scientists and researchers explain the changes in the brain that lead to tolerance, dependence, addiction, and altered mental functioning. The drugs discussed include alcohol, cocaine, heroin, nicotine, and marijuana. A pdf teacher's guide is included with student handouts and pre- and post-tests. Grades 7–12. Spanish subtitles. Closed captioned. Color. 24 minutes. Human Relations Media. ©2016.
