JESOLO, ITALY - Less than an hour from Venice is one of the most popular and beautiful seaside towns in Italy. A favorite holiday resort on the Adriatic for locals and tourists, Jesolo also has a reputation as a party town. It was here that volunteers from a nearby Scientology Church launched their annual drug prevention campaign June 26 on International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.

Drug-Free World volunteers returned the following weekend, committed to carrying forward the UN Office on Drugs and Crime motto for World Drug Day 2021: Share Facts on Drugs-Save Lives.

Aware of the increase in drug overdose deaths in Italy in the height of the pandemic, Drug-Free World volunteers reached out to those relaxing in the beach town with factual information on the most commonly abused substances.

The popularity of the Truth About Drugs initiative is based on its effectiveness. Its booklets, PSAs and documentary communicate the reality of drug abuse in terms anyone can relate to. Because those presented with the unvarnished facts about drugs are far more likely to reject them on their own, Truth About Drugs is a favorite educational tool in nations across the globe.

The award-winning Truth About Drugs initiative:

  1. Is available in 26 languages.
  2. Its public service announcements and The Truth About Drugs-Real People, Real Stories documentary air on the Scientology Network and on 850 other TV stations.
  3. More than 135,000 people have completed the free online drug education eCourse on the Foundation for a Drug-Free World website at www.drugfreeworld.org/course.
  4. The Foundation has reached some 13 million students through more than 30,000 schools, institutions and groups that use the Truth About Drugs curriculum.

To make these materials available to anyone wishing to tackle the drug crisis, the Church of Scientology International Dissemination and Distribution Center in Los Angeles, California, produces and ships out Truth About Drugs booklets, DVDs and education packages free of charge to parents, educators, law enforcement, community groups and nonprofits.
