WEIR, Miss. (WCBI) – Students at Weir attendance center got a lesson on how to build strong families through drug prevention and awareness.

Youth mentor Dave Yauk spoke to the students about how important it is to stay away from drugs.

How many people do not understand why or how other people become addicted to drugs.

And how drug addiction is a complex disease and quitting take more than good intentions.

Drug abuse and addiction have negative consequences for individuals and for society.

The program was part of a drug awareness and prevention week for the students.
