So you didn't know teenagers could be drug addicts and alcoholics? DRUG CLASS began in Regina High schools because teachers realized that there was a severe drug problem within their high schools and school communities. To help educate their population, they called in Rand Teed, who the kids call “the drug teacher” In this episode we will meet Rand and six of his students who are dealing with various levels of drug and alcohol consumption. Rand's believes the key to sobriety and becoming clean is to understand the effects drugs and alcohol can have on your life and how they can affect you physically, emotionally, spirituality and socially. DRUG CLASS is about helping the viewer to understand this process.
