The Truth About Drugs program provides teachers, law enforcement and community groups with effective drug education materials.
Drug-Free South (DFS) is having an Open House on April 7th for World Health Day. According to the World Health Organization which sponsors the day, “World Health Day is celebrated on 7 April every year to mark the anniversary of the founding of WHO [World Health Organization] in 1948. Each year a theme is selected that highlights a priority area of public health. The Day provides an opportunity for individuals in every community to get involved in activities that can lead to better health.”
So in alignment with celebrating healthy living, Drug-Free South is having an open house to spread the world about living drug-free and sharing its materials to help spread the word.
Drug-Free South is the Tennessee Chapter of the Foundation for a Drug-Free World, which provides the Truth About Drugs booklets, The “They Said, They Lied” public service announcements, and the 100-minute documentary, The Truth About Drugs: Real People, Real Stories which all work together to provide students the facts on drugs.
DFS helps kids understand the truth about drugs, so they don’t get caught off-guard when a dealer is trying to talk them into doing something they will always regret.
Drug-Free South is dedicated to handling the drug problem in Tennessee, and wants to encourage all educators to visit drugfreesouth.org to schedule a drug education seminar in their school. Parents and teachers can order Truth About Drugs booklets and DVDs free of charge from the website or download the free Truth About Drugs Education Application onto their iPads or iPhones.
