“Join us for the film “Screenagers: Under the Influence” and a panel discussion Q&A including representatives from Freedom Quest, ANKORS and SD8.

Kids are vaping in classrooms. Dealers are directly messaging teens on Instagram and Snapchat. Cannabis is legal, with psychedelics soon to follow. The constant, 24-hour deluge of content pushing the normalcy of drugs, alcohol, and vaping on social media, TV, movies, ads, influencers, etc., is preying on our youth. The substance use culture has never been more appealing and accessible to teens than it is today.

Screenagers Under The Influence: Addressing Vaping, Drugs, and Alcohol in the Digital Age, the third feature documentary in the Screenagers trilogy, delves into how the tech revolution has reshaped
adolescence and its effects on substance use. The film debunks myths and depicts strategies parents and schools can use to encourage healthy decision-making, support teen mental health, set limits, and
create healthy home environments. The film also includes many ways young people use their wisdom and strength to help each other and themselves through this complicated terrain around substance use.

While most documentaries about substance use focus on severe addiction, Screenagers Under The Influence fills a pressing need for a film that explores more common scenarios. The film is grounded in
teens’ current reality of being flooded by images on social media, movies, and TV shows about vaping, drugs, and alcohol. Screenagers Under The Influence interweaves cutting-edge science with personal stories to create an informative and entertaining film experience for
young people and adults alike. Screenagers Under The Influence focuses on practical solutions for keeping our teens safe in a changing world.
