A middle school in central Kentucky kick-started a program Wednesday designed to raise awareness about drugs and alcohol.

Called "Truth and Consequences," the program, with the help of local officials and agencies, will provide almost 300 students at Royal Spring Middle School in Georgetown a chance to learn about the physical, emotional and financial tolls of drugs and alcohol.

Students are put into role-playing scenarios (like stealing drugs or driving under the influence) and then taken to the connecting office to experience the consequences of their "actions."

Children will also meet face-to-face with recovering addicts and be allowed to visit a State Police mobile meth trailer.
