Center of Scientology of Tel Aviv Helps Youth in the Game of a Drug-Free Life
Israeli Scientologists helping youth live drug-free
The Center of Scientology of Tel Aviv organized a special soccer tournament June 16-18 in the northern Israel city of Tamra to promote drug-free living.
The tournament, timed to take place at the end of the school year, marked the culmination of a project to provide drug education in all the middle schools and two elementary schools in the city.
Held on the eve of the United Nations Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, some 2,000 enthusiastic students and their teachers participated in the soccer games and awards ceremony.
Students were presented with Truth About Drugs T-shirts and certificates acknowledging their completion of the Truth About Drugs curriculum.
Scientology: How We Help—The Truth About Drugs, Creating a Drug-Free World is a brochure that provides more information about the drug education and prevention initiative supported by Scientologists. To learn more or to read a copy of the brochure, visit www.Scientology.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 Truth About Drugs is 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.
