Prescription Drug Use by Teens


"There's a reason that prescription drugs are intended to be taken under the direction of a doctor. If used improperly they can be dangerous. Teens are making the decision to abuse prescription medicines based on misinformation. In fact, many people think that abusing prescription drugs is safer than abusing illicit drugs. As the facts will tell you, prescription drugs can have dangerous short- and long-term health consequences when used incorrectly or by someone other than for whom they were intended." - National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).



What is Autism?


Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a range of complex neurodevelopment disorders, characterized by social impairments, communication difficulties, and restricted, repetitive, and stereotyped patterns of behavior.



So What Is The Connection?


Peers Influence Peers XVIII: Fine Lines is an hour-long program that fuses documentary material with an original screenplay that addresses the potentially dangerous misuse of prescription drugs and through a unique twist in the story brings awareness to the issue of autism in teens. It's a program produced by youth for a youth audience. This dramatic presentation doesn't pretend to solve these concerns of youth just exposes them. It does not provide answers; it poses the questions and presents the issues. "Fine Lines" provides talking points for discussion in the classroom.



Key Concepts:


* Prescription drug misuse in society is a growing problem.
* Pressures that teens face may cause bad decisions.
* Shows the face of autism in teens.
* Those who suffer from ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) struggle with life in a difficult world for them.


Target Audiences:   
This pre-recorded program is targeted to youth and young adults ages 13-21 and those who work with youth. It is also intended for members of anti-drug coalitions, prevention specialists, educators, law enforcement, and parents. This program is also suitable for public access television and high school audiences.
