BRIDGEPORT - Current and former students of Bridgeport's Central High School are fighting for a program that helps teens battle drug and alcohol addictions.

A group met last night to discuss what the school's "Peer to Peer" program means to them.

The program operates during school hours, but the Board of Education wants to make it an after school program.

The program currently treats about 500 students.
