Thursday is Drug Awareness Day at North Central Health Care in Wausau. The kids heard first hand from real life drug users, and could bounce around from booth to booth, learning about how they could throw their lives away.

"I have a chapter in the book that's telling kids if you're good at burglarizing, this is what you could be good at," says Ron Gladoski, author and former drug user. "If you're good at drug dealing, this is what you could be good at, because if you keep at, because if you keep on doing what you're doing, you're going to end up dead or in prison the rest of your life."

"Everything from sports to chess to reading to kayaking, outdoor stuff, there's just a million things people could be doing instead of drinking alcohol and doing drugs," says Dave Forsythe of the Department of Justice Narcotics Division.

About 1,000 students took part in the program.
