CLEARWATER, Fla., Aug. 06, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With its doors wide open to the community, the Foundation for a Drug-Free World of Clearwater, Florida, is fast becoming the nexus of a community-wide drug prevention movement.
Hundreds of local residents have toured the new facility since it opened July 11. During their visits they watched public service announcements as well as Truth About Drugs—Real People, Real Stories documentaries, leaving armed with booklets and other materials to help youths in their decisions to live drug-free lives.
The opening of the center comes amid new statistics showing the stranglehold drugs continue to have in Florida and in the Clearwater area. As an example:
The need for effective drug education cannot be overstated. Educators and community leaders visiting the new Foundation for a Drug-Free World Clearwater headquarters are finding exactly what they need to fight the scourge.
On touring the center, one community activist who works at a summer camp for at-risk youth realized this was exactly the information these youngsters need. Another, who deals with substance abuse in a nearby county, left with a Truth About Drugs educator’s kit to introduce the program to colleagues who deliver drug education. And as Clearwater attracts visitors from around the country, a teacher from New Jersey toured the center, learned about the program, and decided to implement the Truth About Drugs curriculum in her school.
The Truth About Drugs prevention movement is building in momentum, with volunteers handing out copies of the booklets around town and on the beach.
The center is open seven days a week and is part of a complex of centers dedicated to making the humanitarian programs sponsored by the Church of Scientology available to the community including an Information Center that provides a wealth of information on Dianetics, Scientology and the Church’s Founder, L. Ron Hubbard.
This new Foundation for a Drug-Free World center is one of six new facilities, each dedicated to helping with the pressing issues that impact Clearwater and the Greater Tampa Bay area:
