Empowers youth and adults with factual information about drugs so they can make informed decisions and live drug-free.
No one questions the severity of the drug problem and its devastating impact on youth. Academic results suffer and, even worse, drugs undermine health and destroy young lives.
The best solution is to reach young people with effective, fact-based drug education—before they start experimenting with drugs. Tweens, teens and young adults who know the facts about drugs are much less likely to start using them.
The core of the Foundation’s education program consists of the 1 hour and 42 minute documentary, The Truth About Drugs: Real People-Real Stories. The documentary is supplemented by drug information booklets.
No one, especially a young person, likes to be lectured about what he or she can or cannot do. Thus, we provide the facts that empower youth to choose not to take drugs in the first place.
Additionally, our Truth about Drugs program consists of activities that volunteers can join which popularize drug-free living. These activities are simple, effective and can involve people of all ages.
This Truth About Drugs Education Package is the ideal supplemental aid. It fills the growing demand for practical tools to help the teacher, instructor or drug prevention specialist communicate the truth about drugs swiftly and effectively. It provides lesson plans, assignments and classroom activities that capture and retain young people’s attention—and elicit their participation. Students willingly read, view and, most importantly, use the information to make the right choices about drugs.
Let’s reach kids before drugs do!
