 program, was highlighted at an April 2nd town-hall meeting co-sponsored by the federal government and Communities Mobilizing for Change on Alcohol (CMCA) in Plymouth, MA. Drugs4Real.com teaches early adolescents about the influence of alcohol and other drugs and strengthens their commitment to avoid taking these substances. This meeting was a part of a nationwide series of town hall meetings focused on the problem of underage drinking and was broadcast live on WATD-FM 95.9.

The first town hall meeting in this series was held on March 24 in Riverton, Wyoming, and was attended by acting U.S. Surgeon General Steven K. Galson, Wyoming's first lady Nancy Freudenthal, and U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo). This series of meetings is sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the Federal Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of Underage Drinking, and state and local leaders.

The April 2nd meeting entitled, "Addressing Underage Drinking in America's Hometown" featured a tour of the Drugs4Real online program as well as a presentation on the efficacy of the program. Other speakers included: Captain Botieri of the Plymouth Police, K. Megan Skelding, M.A., clinical director of High Point, a mental health and substance abuse center, and Jennifer Pinto, director of the Plymouth Youth Development Collaborative.

"Participants at Plymouth's Town Hall Meeting gained new knowledge and skills on how to prevent and respond to underage drinking. The Drugs4Real.com presentation and K. Megan Skelding's speech sparked positive feedback from the audience. The forum was truly successful in starting a community-wide dialogue about the issues of underage drinking in Plymouth," said Linda Rudnick, Community Organizer, CMCA Plymouth.

Developed with grant funding from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the Drugs4Real program covers four main content areas: drug basics, tobacco, alcohol, and marijuana. A fifth area, Media Watch, focuses on building media literacy and adolescents' awareness of the messages advertisers use to influence attitudes and perceptions about drugs. Drugs4Real was developed and tested by a team of research scientists, graphic designers, and interactive developers. More information can be obtained by contacting sschott @ inflexxion.com.
