Heroin is an extremely addictive Opioid drug that is synthesized from Morphine. Heroin can be snorted, smoked, or injected and usually comes in a white or brown powder substance. It is estimated that almost of all people who use Heroin once become addicted. Teen Heroin and Opioid abuse is a growing danger in our youth. The image of a listless young heroin addict collapsed in a filthy, dark alley is obsolete. Today, the young addict could be as young as 12 years old, play video games and enjoy the music of his generation. They can appear smart, stylish and bear none of the common traces of heroin use, such as needle marks on their arms. Because it is available in various forms that are easier to consume and more affordable, heroin today is more tempting than ever. The number of teenagers aged 12 to 17, who used heroin at some point in their lives has increased by 300%. A young person who might think twice about putting a needle in his arm may more readily smoke or sniff the same drug. But this is falsely reassuring and may give one the idea that there is less risk. The truth is, heroin in all its forms is dangerous and addictive. This program helps teens recognize the conflicts and stresses they may face and the ways to deal with stress and tough situations by developing healthy habits, making the right choices, the consequences of making the wrong choice, so they become empowered to make the right decisions. It delivers an unforgettable message that will make teens reconsider their first or next high and how addiction can happen to anyone. It reminds teens, there is no cure for addiction

MDMA works by providing a rush of Serotonin and Norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters that signal feelings of pleasure and happiness. Ecstasy is one of the most popular drugs among teens today. It has become an embracive "marketing"#x9D; term for drug dealers selling "Ecstasy-type"#x9D; drugs that may, contain very little or no MDMA at all. While MDMA can produce harmful effects, what is called Ecstasy today can contain a wide mixture of substances-#x9D;from LSD, cocaine, heroin, amphetamine and methamphetamine, to rat poison, caffeine and dog deworming substances. Despite the cute logos dealers put on the pills, this is what makes Ecstasy particularly dangerous, a user never really knows what he is taking. Ecstasy most commonly comes in pill form but can also be injected and taken in other ways. Liquid Ecstasy is actually GHB, a nervous system depressant - a substance that can also be found in drain cleaner, floor stripper and degreasing solvents

Why would someone take drugs in the first place and why do some users get addicted to drugs and some don't? How does addiction happen? Lets find out. Here are real people, telling their real stories of addiction, what happened to them and how hard it was for them to turn their lives around. It teaches teens that one bad decision could take them 20 years to get out of. Addicted Teens is a documentary series that takes an in-depth look at teen addiction. It provides a personal connection with addicts, abusers, families and those in recovery and talks about the risks of trying drugs, an honest look inside substance abuse and the steps towards recovery. Teens and real experts (recovering addicts) discuss their experiences with drug addiction and ex-addicts provide views of their daily battle with this addictive behavior and how they changed their lives. It delivers an unforgettable message that will make teens reconsider their next hit and how addiction can happen to anyone. Illicit drugs include marijuana/hashish, cocaine (including crack), heroin, hallucinogens, inhalants, or prescription drugs used without a prescription. These drugs are chemicals and while each drug produces different physical effects, all abused substances share one thing in common. They hijack the normal function of the brain and change the way the brain responds to issues of self-control, judgment, emotion, motivation, memory and learning. Drugs change the signals coming to and from the brain. Although this can cause temporary euphoria it can also cause hallucinations, anxiety, paranoia and uncontrolled behavior. Marijuana is the number one gateway drug for teenagers. It is stated that teens who smoke marijuana are 85 times more likely to use other illicit drugs. Many teens do not understand why or how they can become addicted to drugs. It is often mistakenly assumed that drug abusers lack moral principle or willpower and that they could stop using simply by choosing to change their behavior. In reality, drug addiction is a complex disease and quitting takes more than good intentions or strong will. Because drugs change the brain in ways that foster compulsive drug abuse, quitting and recovery is a lifelong commitment

Legal highs are man-made substances/chemicals and strong stimulants that have similar effects to illegal drugs like cocaine, cannabis or ecstasy. They are sometimes called club drugs or new psychoactive substances (NPS) and provide physical, emotional and hallucinogenic effects and are marketed as a legal high. They range from plants, to synthetic drugs, to medicines you can buy from a pharmacy. What makes them similar is that they are all legal, but that does not mean they are safe. There is often not enough research about these drugs to know their potency or the adverse effects from human consumption. You cannot really be sure of what is in them or the effect they could have on you. Many legal highs have been directly linked to poisoning, seizures, severe trauma and in some cases death. So what is a teens motivation to try these drugs? This program attempts to find out but asking teens the question, what are legal highs?

E-cigarettes have been called the next generation cigarette and vaping the newest way for teens to start smoking. Studies state that 1 in 4 high school students have already tried e-cigarettes. Teens who vape are more likely to start smoking than teens who don't and nonsmoking teens who start vaping are 3 times as likely to start smoking cigarettes. Vaping is on the rise amongst teens. Vaping does encourage teens to start smoking. It poses a serious threat to teens and in creating the next generation of smokers. So what makes Vaping so dangerous? Most teens assume vaping is harmless, however it is not. E-cigs contain mostly "nicotine", which can wreak havoc with the cardiovascular system and lead to hypertension and heart attacks. Nicotine is an addicting substance and can work as a "gateway"#x9D; drug to smoking regular cigarettes. In its concentrated, potent, liquid form, nicotine is blended with a variety of flavorings, colorings, assorted chemicals and toxins to create a vapor. It's this nicotine that can cause an addiction and fuel a teens' transition from vaping to smoking. What is the vapor made from and how does it work? Vaping might be hard to notice since there is no cigarette smoke or smell of it. Vaping liquids can be flavored to taste like fruit or candy and are becoming the new way for drug users to not only get high, but do it discreetly - at times right under the nose of parents and teachers. E-cigarettes are also very accessible and easier to conceal. Many vaping devices are designed to look like pens, compact, shiny and easy to disguise. These vape-pens may look like a regular pen, however the e-cigarettes deliver nicotine through this heated vapor. E-cigarettes actually emit more than just smoke. It is an aerosol, which is a suspension of particles, toxins and other chemicals suspended within a gas. E-cig vapor often contains even more particles than tobacco smoke. Vaping can cause as much short-term inflammation in the lungs as regular cigarettes and the nicotine-free vapor may cause even more. Also fueling the trend is the accessibility of oil concentrates. A vape pen creates an inhalable vapor with a small inner coil that slowly heats, creating a vapor that is inhaled. Water-soluble synthetics are easily converted into liquid concentrate that can go into the device cartridges and be vaped just like nicotine and other legal substances. It makes it nearly impossible to tell what's inside someone's vape. It could be nicotine, marijuana concentrate, or fruit-flavored or nicotine-free "e-liquid." Worst of all, it could be a deadly concoction of chemicals, known as synthetic drugs. The biggest danger may lie in the use of vaping devices. After a teen is used to some nicotine in the form of an e-cigarette, they may ultimately transition to traditional cigarettes to get nicotine more easily and quickly. Vaping devices are also compatible with marijuana, cocaine, THC liquids and other drugs, making substance abuse easier, less publicly recognizable and easier for a teen to hide. The devices' create a further danger for teen users who may not be completely aware of what's inside the electronic cigarette
