School district, nonprofit to host ‘Reality Tour’
Drug prevention program for middle school students and parents shows realities of drug abuse
– Paso Robles Joint Unified School District, in partnership with the Kayla Peach Memorial Foundation, will be hosting the drug prevention program Reality Tour. The program will be held this Friday, Dec. 2, at Lewis Middle School from 5 – 8 p.m. The program is free for all PRJUSD middle school students and their parents.
The Reality Tour is a dramatic, narrated, interactive walk in the life of a teen on drugs and demonstrates the real-life affect drugs can have on a child’s future. The program, which travels throughout the country, allows participants to follow the fate of a fictitious teen who is addicted to drugs. The tour includes such scenarios as an arrest, jail experience, overdose, and a funeral scene. A narrative by the addict precedes each scene.
