A Long Road to Recovery

Cape Girardeau, MO -
You may remember we introduced you to Justin Prewitt last May.At the time, Prewitt faced two felony drug charges, and his future seemed bleak.
Since we last talked, the nineteen-year-old is three months away from completing a drug court program; he's taking college classes, and most importantly, he's stayed clean.
Now Justin Prewitt hopes his story inspires other teens like him, who have no hope in sight.
"I can't even see why I was getting high all the time," the teen says, when we caught up with him as he worked at a Kennett Machine Shop.
That's quite a change in attitude from last year.
At the time, Prewitt showed us his drug diary, and gave us an idea of all the experimenting he'd done.
"I smoked weed, tried coke and meth, shrooms, acid lots of stuff," he told us then.
