Access and Excess

This production takes a realistic look at the current problems of underage and binge drinking in Ventura County and the factors in the local community – attitudes and norms, access and availability, media messages, and policies – that accept, allow and encourage these dangerous behaviors. Suggestions to help reduce the problems are targeted to parents, youth and community members.
