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.
