As the summer draws to an end and beach-goers in the Sicilian city of Catania bask in their last few days of leisure, they can not only enjoy a refreshing swim, they can also immerse themselves in the truth about drugs, thanks to the efforts of a team of volunteers from the Church of Scientology.
The Scientology group raised a kite bearing a banner proclaiming “Make Health Your High, Not Drugs”—promoting drug-free living to achieve a happier, healthier life.
These summer activities are part of a year-round commitment to drug education and prevention. Volunteers also distribute copies of The Truth About Drugs, a booklet with hard-hitting facts about what drugs are and the damage they can inflict.
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.”
