The Truth About Drugs program provides teachers, law enforcement and community groups with effective drug education materials.
Drug-Free South (DFS) is reaching out and encouraging all to celebrate the upcoming International Day Against Drug Abuse, which takes place each year on June 26. 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.
According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, “June 26 is the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. Established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1987, this day serves as a reminder of the goals agreed to by Member States of creating an international society free of drug abuse.” It is a unique day to take a stand against a problem that affects all of us.
Drug-Free South (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. That is why volunteers for the group are making themselves available to visit schools and share information on the Truth About Drugs.
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.
