Resources for teaching about drug and alcohol abuse/addiction

I am currently looking at alcohol abuse with my pupils. Below are some excellent resources to use when looking at drug and alcohol abuse and addiction with your pupils. They are very effective and they relate to the pupils’ culture in terms of the celebrities and music used. As a result, the pupils become more engaged and enthusiastic with the content.

The clip below is quite graphic at times. I would advise showing the pupils the first 5 minutes of the video clip to communicate the devastating effects of alcohol abuse.

(The language in the below clip can be unsuitable at times. I would advise watching the full video and pulling out the key clips from the video. I would NOT show the full documentary to the pupils due to the mature language use.)

Des Bishop created an excellent television series called ‘Under The Influence’. The first five minutes of the first episode communicates with excellence how society  influences how much a person drinks.
