DALLAS, February 20, 2018 – Most kids in high school attend football games, hang out with friends and participate in recreational activities. That wasn’t the case for Alec Juknalis, who lives in Greater Dallas. Juknalis – now 20 – became addicted to drugs during his freshman year in high school at the age of 15.
