Three independent web adventures tackle the neuroscience of drug abuse and help teens learn about the health effects of inhalants, ecstasy, and opioids.

Each adventure is divided into three to five episodes that are playable in 30-45 minutes. In each adventure, players help solve a drug-related case or problem. They gather scientific evidence, collect and interpret data, conduct laboratory experiments, and consult with experts to solve the case. They learn how drugs affect the body, especially the nervous system, so that they can make wise health choices when encountering drugs of abuse.

As they solve the virtual problems, teens gain:

  • Problem solving skills
  • Understanding of basic neuroscience
  • Understanding of the impact of drugs on the brain and behavior.
