Community groups like anti-drug coalitions or youth clubs number in the thousands in the US. Every day, there's groups like this spreading an anti-drug message to youth and adults in their communities. With governments tied up with the law enforcement and legislative side of drug problems, coalitions and clubs may be the premier force opposing the spread of drug abuse. To support these groups and help them win this fight, Narconon has created a new resource for anyone working in community anti-drug activities: an easy to use index to videos, brochures and articles titled "Resources for Anti-Drug Coalitions, Youth Clubs and Other Community Groups."
On this page, community groups will find resources including:
- A dozen in-depth articles on the health risks of using different kinds of types of drugs
- Forty-nine different articles on the effects of using drugs such as cocaine, alcohol, heroin or bath salts
- Twenty-two articles on signs and symptoms or drug use or more information about specific drugs
- Simple brochures for parents on the dangers of prescription drug abuse or marijuana – perfect for download or printing
- Seventeen educational videos on the harm done by different drugs
- Nine resources to help parents talk to their children about drugs.
"Coalition and youth group members work hard all year round to prevent young people from starting to use drugs and help those who have become addicted," said Clark Carr, president of Narconon International. "As we have such similar goals, we wanted to support our coalitions and clubs with a special resource, created just for them. They are welcome to read, download and use the free materials available on this page in their efforts to save lives in their local areas."
These resources are available by visiting http://www.narconon.org/drug-abuse/community-resources.html.
"The community activists are mostly volunteers who see a need and step up to help," said Carr. "They have our respect and admiration. We're pleased to offer these materials as we observe Recovery Month 2014."
