Utilizing hard-hitting, dramatic footage with insightful interviews, this program graphically illustrates why alcohol is so widely used and abused by both adults and teens. From its role as an important commodity in our economic system, to its role as a deceptive escape from personal problems..from the enormous media campaigns promoting alcohol to its role as a major contributing factor in the deaths of thousands of drunk drivers..from the societal pressures to the shattered personal lives, The Truth About Alcohol exposes the contradictions of the drug while encouraging the viewer to think about the implications. Why do people drink? How much is too much? How can one deal with the peer pressure? When does "social drinking" stop and the self-deceptive web of alcoholism begin? What role do low self-esteem, self-doubt, and insecurity play in making decisions about drinking? These and many other questions are explored.
