When Will Connell was 14 years old, his parents decided to go through a divorce, and he decided to abuse prescription drugs.  Now, Will Connell is a Hennepin County Sheriff Merit Award Winner for his courageous efforts of defeating his addiction.

KSTP got to talk to Connell about why he went down that path, and how you can make your relationship with your child stronger.

Connell said that kids should choose friends wisely, and parents should be open with their children so that their children can feel open to talk to them about anything.
