LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - Despite statistics showing drug use among youths age 14 – 18 has decreased over recent years, overdose deaths in that age group nearly doubled from 2019 to 2020 and have continued to climb. The cause: counterfeit pain and anxiety medications laced with fentanyl or similar synthetic opioids.

And it’s not just an American problem. In the town of Křtiny in southeastern Czech Republic, Foundation for Drug-Free World volunteers delivered lectures in a local school. The students were eager to have their own copies of the booklets and were surprised to find out how much they didn’t know about drugs and alcohol. Teachers there were just as enthusiastic about the workshop volunteers gave them on how to use the Truth About Drugs materials. It was clear to the teachers how much the program could help them deal with problems they encounter with their teenage pupils.

Truth About Drugs booklets, videos, posters, lesson plans and activities are designed to engage young people. The youth-friendly booklets are particularly popular. Kids are curious about drugs and these booklets replace false pro-drug propaganda on the most commonly abused drugs with the facts.

Foundation for a Drug-Free World is a volunteer-based organization with a network of 200 chapters around the world. Thanks to the support of the Church of Scientology and Scientologists, the Foundation provides the Truth About Drugs secular program and materials free of charge to drug educators worldwide.

Learn more about the Truth About Drugs initiative and Foundation for a Drug-Free World on the Scientology Network, where drug prevention advocates creating change with the program are featured in episodes of the original series Voices for Humanity.

Watch them on DIRECTV Channel 320 or stream them at Scientology.tv, on mobile apps and via the Roku, Amazon Fire and Apple TV platforms.
