Raising awareness about drugs in the community and figuring out ways to combat that issue was the goal of the Union City peer educators last night.

Members from the Union City community attended a special presentation that was tackling drug usage and ways to prevent students and others from turning to drugs.

The event featured a recovering heroin user and officials from the Attorney General's office.

Students helped coordinate the entire event, and they say it's extremely important to draw attention to the issue.

Students tell us they have a big conference each year, but this is the first year it's focused on drug awareness.
