Ever wonder why some teens stay drug and alcohol free? “The Silent Majority” gives some surprising answers to what teens really want to help them make good choices about drugs and alcohol. At no time in history have young people faced more challenges to their health and wellbeing, yet the majority of teens are making good choices. The Silent Majority highlights teens and college students impacted by four unique programs that empower them do the right thing and change their lives forever. Drug Free Youth, shows how one city built a community center and a program to inspire their young people with rewards for being drug and alcohol free that benefit the whole community. Teen Court and Camp X-RYD show a diversion program for first offenders in which teens learn from each other, and inmates in jail, what happens when they break the law. The Watch Your BAC program in two Tampa universities tackles binge drinking as students learn how to monitor their Blood Alcohol Concentration, what really happens in a DUI stop, and how reflexes are impacted by alcohol. At Road Recovery in New York, teens in recovery play in a band mentored by rock stars, and learn that musical expression and team work can make all the difference in helping them stay clean.
