It's great that a huge show like ER would shine a spotlight on this issue. Great way to open a conversation with kids!

Great story and I think people like to hear how things are based on real events. It is good to see Hollywood doing some drug and alcohol prevention eduaction/ awareness, but sad that it is usally re-active instead of pro-active.
