Their powerful need for peer acceptance leaves young teens vulnerable to pressure to use drugs or alcohol. This highly effective program re-emphasizes the fact that students can respect their own best interests and say "no" to drugs. Students learn that they do have choices, and the specific techniques for dealing assertively with the pressure to take drugs and alcohol. At a secret party after school play tryouts, Jessica, Jeff, and Vanessa are each faced with a predicament: Should Jeff have a beer so he won't let his friend Rob down? Should Jessica take the drink Chris offers because she has a crush on him? Should Vanessa hide the joint Lindsay has been smoking, just so Lindsay will be her friend? The party breaks up when someone spots the school security guard, but the pressure-filled questions remain. Jeff's sister helps him see that he has the right to act in his own best interest. Jessica's friend asks her if she's thought about the consequences of her actions. Vanessa's friend advises her to question whether Lindsay really is her friend. At rehearsal next day, the drama teacher and the guidance counselor lead a discussion about peer pressure. They then outline -- and have students demonstrate -- specific assertiveness techniques to use in situations like these.
