Storyboard Text

  • This is such a fun sport!!!
  • Throughout this recovery process, in order to boost his self-esteem Jake tried out something new and joined a community service.  Jake was quite interested in basketball so he tried it out.  Jake also joined a community service where they cook meals for homeless people.
  • At first, Jake took his therapists advice for granted as he did not believe there were any long-term effects, so he continued to take ecstasy.  However, Jake, who used to be a 7 student, is flunking most of his classes in school, just now he got his math project back and he got a 3! From then on Jake started to believe what the therapist was saying was true.
  • I always feel sleepy in class, I feel like my brain can't function like it used to. Maybe my therapist was right.
  • Jake is experiencing the long-term effects of ecstasy.  This includes brain damage, impaired learning and memory.  This is what is causing him to flunk his classes.
  • I believe the therapist now, ecstasy does have long-term effects!  He mentioned that it can even cause a heart attack, where I can die.  I'm not letting that happen, I'm changing my life.
  • A 3 No!!!!! What is happening? I'm flunking so many of my classes!
  • Hey guys, I don't want to go to any parties anymore. I'm done taking ecstasy! I'm not going to the party tonight.
  • Jake knows he did the right thing.  To stop his addiction, he has to stop hanging out with the cool kids, as they are a terrible influence on him.  He knows that, while they ridicule him now, they will eventually regret taking ecstasy.
  • WHAT A LOSER! YOURE SUCH A WIMP, YOU'RE NOT IN GROUP ANYMORE!
  • GET LOST LOSER!!!
  • 45 minutes later...Jake doesn't feel so good.  He is now experiencing short-term effects: hyperthermia, the condition of having an abnormally high body temperature. He is also hallucinating.  Hallucinations can either be visual or auditory. In addition to that, he is also becoming anxious and paranoid. Most effects last up to 6 hours.
  • The colors are so bright! Hey, man why do you look like that?  What is happening!!! Where am I?
  • Ugh! My heart is beating so fast, my body temperature is so hot! 
  • Everything is so blurry! Why is everything around me moving! AGHHH!
  • Hey Jake, before you continue to take any more ecstasy I want you to consider the long-term effects caused by ecstasy. Taking the drug could make you even more depressed, can cause brain damage, impaired learning and memory, irregular heart beats, a negative effect on the immune system, and even a heart attack, in which you could die.  The drug is not worth your life.
  • Okay...
  • Alex tried very hard to stop Jake from taking ecstasy because of the problems it could have on his health, but Jake refused to listen, so he decided to talk to Jake's parents.
  • Hi Mr. and Mrs. Adams, I just wanted to tell you that Jake was influenced and got addicted to ecstasy and he refuses to stop.
  • Recovery process-->  shows how he recovers, hangs out with new people, does things to rid himself of his addiction. Use the strategies like joining community service, joining a sport
  • OH DEAR! We need to get help from a therapist immediately!
