  • You come home from practice one Saturday afternoon. You decide to take a shower to clean up then spend the rest of your night trying to find something on TV. As you are scrolling through the channels, passing the news station, the name of your role model (insert athletic role model name here) catches your attention and he/she has just been found overdosed in their hotel room from cocaine. No one even knew they were a user.


What is alcohol

What is alcohol?

  • Alcohol is a psychoactive drug produced by the fermentation of yeast, sugars, and starches.

  • The only people really winning are the alcohol industries.
