Anabolic steroid use is increasing among adolescents in the United States. Featuring two separate videos (Understanding Anabolic Steroid Use and Preventing Anabolic Steroid Use), Anabolic Steroid Use reviews the current problem of anabolic steroid use and the intake of other illicit and controlled substances and athletic supplements by adolescent athletes. The DVD also covers the benefits and risks of anabolic steroid use, the risk factors involved in such use among young athletes, and how the marketing of steroid images focuses on only the benefits of steroids and downplays their potent and dangerous side effects. In addition, two state-of-the-art programs that are designed to help effectively reduce substance abuse among young athletes are discussed.
