The Truth About Drugs program provides teachers, law enforcement and community groups with effective drug education materials.
Church of Scientology actively supports drug education and prevention initiatives. Church members participate in the Drug-Free South (DFS) program, which is the Tennessee Chapter of the Foundation for a Drug-Free World. Currently, the church is helping to plan an Open House event to honor International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking which takes place June 26.
The day was created by the UN General Assembly in December 1987 to encourage all sectors of society to work together to tackle drug abuse and addiction. Drug-Free South is celebrating the day by showcasing its materials for educators and hosting a forum to discuss community problems and ways to address them.
The Foundation for a Drug-Free World 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.
