Families came together to learn about preventing drug use at a local high school.

A community drug education program in Fairview helped middle and high school students understand the risk of drug use, and how to prevent it from happening to someone they know.

Different sessions were held for students and parents. Parents learned about what their children are exposed to, and heard real life stories of drug abuse.

"Saying yes to drugs at a young age could lead to crime later. It could lead to losing things like jobs and families and friends and school and things like that, so just that so the kids are aware just to say no first thing,” said Maria Miller, a Fairview School District parent.

Various community organizations were on hand to provide resources for families.
