German Scientologists Taking Action Against Drug Abuse

Volunteers from German Scientology Churches are making this a summer for drug-free living.

German Scientologists, dedicated to eradicating drug abuse through education, are bringing the truth about drugs to their communities.

Taking advantage of the summer months to reach as many youth as possible, the “Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Life” volunteers distribute thousands of he Truth About Drugs booklet in their cities each weekend. They also place sets of the booklets in local shops where teens are likely to see them.

They set up their drug information booths in prominent locations and reach out to people one-on-one with factual information on what drugs are and what they do.

Active for more than two decades—in Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Hanover, Munich, Stuttgart and Berlin—the bright turquoise shirts of the Say No to Drugs volunteers have become synonymous with drug prevention.

Scientologists on five continents work in their communities to empower others with the truth about drugs throughout the year. The Church and its members are dedicated to eradicating drug abuse through education.

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.”
