Youth AOD workers have been sending us their favourite AOD videos. Check out this weeks top 3 picks.

Video is an effective way of communicating with workers and young people alike. These three all offer the right balance of humor, accuratte info and interesting ideas.

1. This Is Your Brain on Drugs 

Neuroscientist Carl Heart has experimented with methamphetamines inside and outside the lab. He delivers the ultimate lecture on meth, brain chemistry and how drugs have less of a long-term impact on your brain than you would expect. 

2.The Culture High 

Last week a regional youth AOD worker shared this video with YoDAA. He told us that once we saw it, we’d have to share it. We have since used it as the opening message in a youth worker induction. Looks like he was right!

3. First Time with a Pill or Powder 

YoDAA’s pick. Produced by the Global Drug Survey, this is one of our favourite harm minimisation videos of all time. A must see for young people and workers alike.

We'd love to know your favourite video. Send your links to and watch this space.
