GRAND JUNCTION A few drug free teens are getting ready to start the next chapter of life, but not before they get the ultimate high.
Several students recently graduated from the Neural Activity Program in Mesa County and they are celebrating by sky diving.

Students in the program teach others about the effects of drug and alcohol on your brain and participate in adventure activities for a natural rush.

"We've had so many great strides and so many great experiences in our year this year and it has just been incredible," Graduate Shelby Rubalcaba said. "It's so exciting to know that this is prospering and spreading."

This is the first year the program was in Mesa County and it will continue next year.
There were eight teen mentors that visited different middle schools to teach about drugs and alcohol.
