Drug-Free South has a message for all students, and this past week, they took that message to every student in Lake County, Tennessee.
Drug-Free is the way to be if you live in Lake County. Drug-Free South just wrapped up a tour of every school in the area, where they spoke to nearly 1,000 students on the dangers of drug usage.
“We distributed almost 1,500 booklets,” says Anne Vallieres who volunteers for Drug-Free South, “many of them ask for additional booklets to give to their friends and family.”
Before the day was done, Drug-Free South volunteers also visited the Sheriff’s office where they left information on the program, so the county can remain safe and healthy.
“We will go to anyone, anywhere with our message,” says Vallieres.
Drug-Free South volunteers have been to more than 30 counties with the drug-free message and have distributed over 50,000 booklets.
Drug-Free South is a chapter of the Foundation for a Drug-Free World, based in Los Angeles, California, which provides educational tools to help students learn the truth about drugs. The Foundation provides a booklet which covers common street names of drugs, short and long term effects as well as myths that a dealer might say to make the sale. It also provides an in-depth documentary of former users telling their story and an entire educational curriculum to help students understand what drugs really are.
