Recognizing the signs of an overdose can be a lifesaving skill for someone in need of help. Alcohol is one of the top drug choices for teens, making teens at high risk for over-consumption of alcohol. More readily available that other kinds of drugs and often done in secrecy by underage drinkers, teens may be hesitant to call for help and more likely to drink too much.
Combining binge drinking with inexperienced teens in unsupervised settings is a recipe for disaster. Learning how to recognize alcohol poisoning is a useful skill. In this activity, students will create a three cell storyboard explaining the signs of overdose, how to help, and what to do while waiting. This should be covered in class prior to the assessment, and students should not depict actual use of the drug.
