Teen Files Flipped: Tobacco (cc)

Following the award-winning uncompromising Teen Files series comes another in-your-face- series geared to teens: The Teen Files Flipped. In this program, The Teen Files Flipped: Tobacco we explore the themes of addiction and the dangers of tobacco through the lives of two ambitious teenagers. Kyle, a self-proclaimed "nicotine freak" dependent on smokeless tobacco, hopes to become a professional baseball player, while Ashlee, a chronic cigarette smoker, hopes to make it as an actress in Hollywood. Each of them is unconcerned about their virulent habit, declaring themselves to be "invincible". For 24 hours, reality is controlled and belief is suspended as these two teenagers find their worlds upended and "flipped". Believing they've won an opportunity to live out their fantasies, they instead discover the destructive realities of tobacco as they watch their lives go up in smoke. This reality-based program brings a new twist to teaching students about the dangers of tobacco. An Arnold Shapiro/Allison Grodner Production.

The Teen Files Flipped/The Reality of Drug Use

A group of four teens - Carissa, Kriss, Stephen and Crystal - all use marijuana regularly. Although their drug use causes problems they each profess that smoking weed is their hobby and their passion. When they are "flipped", each must confront his or her drug use in a different way. Arrested for being under the influence and convicted of drug trafficking, Stephen is sent to a treatment facility for a term of up to 18 months. Kriss, who believes driving under the influence is an acceptable risk, is the driver in a DUI car wreck. Transported to hospital, he learns he's been "paralyzed for life". Carissa is thrown out of her home by her tough love Mom, stays at a hostel for homeless teens, then "overdoses on methamphetamines and dies". Crystal, the "ringer" in the group has a real-life story: her brother Caleb did die of a drug overdose. The teens react strongly to their dramatized situations, vowing they don't want to see any of this happen for real. An Arnold Shapiro/Allison Grodner Production.
