National Scientology Organization of Mexico Holds Drug Education Forum
Speakers share ideas/tools to counter drug abuse
The Truth About Drugs Forum at the National Scientology Organization of Mexico brought together community groups concerned with tackling drug abuse in Mexico City.
The purpose of the program was to raise awareness in the community on the problem of drugs and effective solutions any caring person or group can implement to help make a difference with this important social problem.
Speakers covered statistics on drug abuse and trafficking. One, who has been carrying out community service in prisons, emphasized how much simple communication can help even hardened criminals come to grips with their drug problems.
The social reform officer of the Scientology Organization spoke of the Truth About Drugs initiative, the training she and other Scientologists have conducted for community leaders, teachers and law enforcement officers, and the results they have seen in young people changing their attitudes about drugs.
Scientologists on five continents work in their communities throughout the year to empower others with the truth about drugs. The Church and its members are dedicated to eradicating drug abuse through education.
The Church of Scientology supports The Truth About Drugs initiative, 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.
The Church of Scientology has published a 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 learn more or read the brochure, visit the Scientology website .
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.”
