jesse-morrowReligious leaders and directors of community betterment foundations immersed themselves in drug prevention training in November at the Church of Scientology National Affairs Office in the newly restored Fraser Mansion in Washington, D.C.Coming on the heels of National Red Ribbon Week, the seminar was conducted by Jesse Morrow, National Affairs Office Social Reform Director, who began with an overview of the church-supported Truth About Drugs curriculum covering the most commonly abused drugs: marijuana, alcohol, Ecstasy, cocaine, crack cocaine, crystal meth, inhalants, heroin, LSD, prescription drugs, painkillers, and Ritalin. Several of those attending are former addicts who have turned their lives around and are now drug prevention activists, helping youth avoid the grip of addiction they once suffered. They discussed their own drug dependency having begun with marijuana and each spoke of the accuracy of The Truth About Marijuana booklet. After studying and discussing The Truth About Marijuana booklet, the attendees watched the public service announcement on marijuana and section of the Real People—Real Stories documentary on the drug. At the close of the three-hour seminar, each participant presented with a Truth About Drugs Educator toolkit, containing the full array of The Truth About Drugs educational resources.The Church of Scientology has published a new brochure, Scientology: How We Help—The Truth About Drugs, Creating a Drug-Free World, to meet requests for more information about the drug education and prevention initiative it supports. To read a copy of the brochure or to learn more about the drug education program supported by the Church of Scientology, visit the Scientology website at wwwScientology.org/antidrug.
Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote, “The planet has hit a barrier which prevents any widespread social progress—drugs and other biochemical substances. These can put people into a condition which not only prohibits and destroys physical health but which can prevent any stable advancement in mental or spiritual well-being.” The Church of Scientology supports the Truth About Drugs, one of the world’s largest nongovernmental drug education and prevention campaigns. It has been conclusively proven that when young people are provided with the truth about drugs—factual information on what drugs are and what they do—usage rates drop commensurately.(jesse-morrow)
