“We applaud NIDA for the work they are doing to raise awareness about drugs and drug abuse. From interviews with those enrolling in the Narconon Program, we find that the truth about marijuana, prescription drugs and illegal street drugs is not widely known. The legalization of medical and recreational use marijuana in different states has clouded the issues even more. We hope everyone reading this will request a free copy of the booklet,“ said John Walser, Senior Intake Counselor, Narconon Freedom Center Michigan.
Anyone wanting more information about drugs and drug abuse or who is trying to help someone struggling with addiction may call an Intake Counselor toll-free at 877-362-9682. All calls are no charge and confidential.
