More About this Product
This outstanding program provides a sobering, no-holds-barred look at the devastating results of reckless spending and problem gambling.
In 2001, Americans charged more than $400 billion on their credit cards, and paid about $50 billion in finance charges for the privilege. Similarly, there is a rise in gambling opportunities available in today's society, and an estimated 3 million U.S. adults meet the criteria for pathological gambling. Both excessive behaviors can have destructive, long-lasting effects on an individual's financial, emotional, social, and occupational well-being.
This program dramatically demonstrates the real-life consequences of credit card abuse and problem gambling. From the creators of the award-winning Teen Files and Scared Straight series, this program also seeks to alert viewers to the danger signs of these risky behaviors. It is designed to give them the information they need to help them make sensible decisions and responsible choices.
