The Ripple Effect is a definitive special investigation into recreational drug use, drug culture, exposing the crimes and criminals behind their manufacturing, international smuggling and the devastating impact overdoses have on Australian families and friends.
It focuses on the facts and impacts of party drugs.
The Ripple Effect education video series' goal is to inform young Australians through their own eyes and, in turn, parents on the dangers associated with taking party drug use as well as the role peer pressure plays in their kids' lives.
This education video series will shine a light on:
► How are drugs made, where they come from and what's in them
► What party pills do to your body when you take them
► The risks young people take when they pop pills
► The role peer pressure plays in drug-taking
► How a single pill can lead to an overdose
► Why young people die from overdoses at music festivals
► How to recognise if your friend is in trouble
► How you can save your friend if they are overdosing
Red Frogs founder and CEO Andy Gourley said: "The Ripple Effect campaign brings awareness and education to the true effects that drugs have on young people's lives.
"It demystifies the reality of it through a creative lens, looking at the issue from all angles and bringing a wider understanding of the ripple effect that drugs have in society."
Andy said The Ripple Effect video series was essential because it illustrated the reality of the risks young people accepted when they took party drugs.
"The videos, while some of it is confronting, does actually show real-life encounters that our team has." he added.
"The videos bring the reality of the issue to the forefront, which is a great talking point for teens to begin a larger conversation that could save a life."
