Still image from Alcohol and the Developing Brain

This program focuses on the effects of alcohol on the still developing adolescent and young adult brain. Students learn that the moldable nature of the young brain makes learning and acquiring new skills easier but also poses greater risks of addiction and dependence. Testimony from experts and recovering alcoholics clarify why people start to drink and why young people are at greater risk of developing an alcohol use disorder.
