Summary:
Addictions A-Z - Dr. Drew Pinsky examines the many different types of chemical addictions and answers common questions on what addiction is and how it is treated. Speaking with former addicts who used alcohol, cocaine, crystal meth, and prescription medications, Dr. Drew stresses that addiction is a disease of the brain that cannot be cured through willpower alone. The program also visits a rehabilitation facility to profile the detoxification process. NOTE: Due to images of drug use, please preview this program before showing it to students.

Weighty Issues - Dr. Drew Pinsky explores America's obesity epidemic and the struggle to maintain a healthy weight. Dr. Drew meets three patients who have undergone weight loss surgery as a last resort to curb their super-obesity. The program also profiles a young man who suffers from anorexia and bulimia, noting that male patients make up one in six of all bulimia cases. Finally, a nutritionist suggests ways to satisfy sugar cravings while maintaining a healthy diet.

Only available in the US.
