The visual medium is considered a strong communication medium and was thus chosen as a tool to develop a teaching guide that could be used as a discussion-provoking programme for training rehabilitation instructors at ADIC (Alcohol Drug Information Center). The production was based on script that was chosen from an island wide competition.
