Teen Drug Abuse: Out of Reach, Medicine Abuse Through the Eyes of a Teen
"Out of Reach" is a special documentary created by a teen filmmaker who
captures the issue of teen prescription drug abuse as it exists in his
world. The issues contained in the film are a reflection of this issue
across the country. It was created in collaboration with director Tucker
Capps (of A&E's "Intervention") and The Partnership at Drugfree.org's Medicine Abuse Project.
With the holiday's around the corner, it is imperative that parents not only know what is in their medicine cabinets, but also be aware of what their parents (grandparents) have in their homes. As you visit relatives and friends this holiday season, it can also be an opportunity for your teen/tween to scout out a variety of bathrooms and medicine cabinets.
Be an educated parent - you will have safer and healthier kids.
