  • Joe Shrand has combined his work as a Child Psychiatrist with his love of theater. Dr. Joe has created Drug Story Theater, a 501 c-3 that takes teenagers in the early stages of recovery, teaches them improvisational theater, then uses psychodrama to help them create their own scripted shows about the seduction of, addiction to, and recovery from drugs and alcohol.  The teens then perform these shows for middle and high schools so "The Treatment of One Becomes the Prevention of Many." All the audience members take a pre-show neuroscience quiz, then watch the show. In between each scene the performers step out of character and present three short interactive powerpoint presentations to the audience teaching them about the adolescent brain and why it is at such risk for life long addiction, more than any other age brain! After the show the audience takes the same neuroscience quiz, and are asked questions about perception: how much do drugs and alcohol influence school, relationships, and do they think marijuana is addictive.  Following that there is a talk-back between the audience and the performers moderated by Dr Joe. www.drugstorytheater.org. Dr. Shrand has also published four books, and has a radio show called The Dr. Joe Show on www.959watd.com. www.drshrand.com.
