Nick Warnke from Mn Adult & Teen Challenge’s Know the Truth program addresses Eastview High School students on Jan. 14. 

They told their personal stories of addiction; discussed gateway drugs, ways to say no to drugs and alcohol, and led an open discussion of things students are dealing with. Lee said the program visits over 100 schools and engages with 60,000 students each year. Common questions they get are how they can help for someone dealing with addiction and how MNTC is different than other programs.
