Narconon Drug Education Receives Positive Response to Prevention Month Activities


(PRWEB) October 23, 2014

Narconon centers around the world are known for their activities to teach young people about the dangers of drug abuse, but when October and National Substance Abuse Prevention Month roll around, outreach efforts in the U.S. increase even more. In Louisiana, the staff at Narconon New Life Retreat set up a booth at the Livingston Parish street fair to hand out drug education materials. They also invited kids from the community to sign a drug-free pledge. Approximately 300 children accepted, signing their names to a large placard in the booth. Booklets detailing the problems associated with drug use and educational DVDs were also handed out to teachers and parents.

In Southern California, a very active drug prevention schedule runs all year round, but for this special month, this schedule was increased. By the third week of the month, the team was on target to reach 10,000 children.

“The welcome our drug prevention specialists received was enthusiastic in both these locations,” said Clark Carr, the president of Narconon International. “At the street fair, our staff were visited by political candidates, a local pastor and the leader of a youth group. In Southern California, our drug education specialists are invited back again and again. Many people realize how serious the drug problem is and appreciate our efforts to get young people to commit to a drug-free life.”

Across Southern California, staff from Narconon Fresh Start visited schools to deliver modules from the Narconon drug prevention curriculum. The feedback surveys from the youth provided evidence that the message was getting through.

“We tabulate the results of every feedback survey we receive,” said Tony Bylsma, the director of drug education for Narconon Fresh Start. “Eighty percent of our students say they have learned new information about drugs and about half say that this information changed the way they think about drug use. Nearly all of them feel they can put this information to good use, either for themselves or their friends.”

“The welcome we receive from youth and community members is proof that our drug prevention outreach is vitally important,” said Carr. “Helping young people grow up sober and successful is one of our biggest motivations across our network of rehabilitation and prevention centers.”

Around the world, there are more than 100 Narconon rehab and education centers. The Narconon rehab program is a long-term residential program founded by William Benitez, that utilizes the humanitarian works of American author L. Ron Hubbard in its recovery steps.

Narconon Supports Drug Prevention Month with New Compilation of Education Resources


(PRWEB) October 13, 2014

In honor of National Substance Abuse Prevention Month, Narconon has compiled a rich array of resources to help parents and teachers keep young people safe and sober. In one location, a teacher can learn about the Narconon drug prevention curriculum and its results, a parent can find simple and detailed guides to help them cover this subject with their children, and young people can find more than a dozen educational videos to fill gaps in their drug knowledge. What makes it even better is that most of these resources are available free of charge.

By visiting http://www.narconon.org/drug-prevention/national-prevention-month.html anyone can find information, booklets and videos to help them in the job of substance abuse prevention. The resources include:

    10 Things Parents May Not Know about Prescription Drug Abuse – a fast guide to bring parents up to speed
    10 Things Parents May Not Know about Marijuana – an update on how this drug has changed and why it is more dangerous than ever
    Eighteen videos for young people, quickly explaining the basics on why people use drugs, the long term effects of weed and the effects of methamphetamine, alcohol and opiates and other drugs
    Complete coverage of the health risks of all the major categories of drugs
    And much more.

“Parents, teachers and young people all deserve to know all they can about drugs and the harm that can result,” said Clark Carr, president of Narconon International. “They need this information to make the choice to stay sober. The pressure on a young person to use drugs or drink can be subtle but also pervasive. It requires certainty about the downside of drug use for a person to elect to stay sober when those around them are getting high. That’s why we offer this information, free whenever possible.”

In addition to offering this information to the public, Narconon staff and volunteers around the world have been providing drug prevention classes to schools and other groups since the late 1960s. The first drug educator was Narconon’s founder, William Benitez, formerly an inmate in the Arizona State Prison system. After he recovered from his addiction, he began teaching at schools in Arizona to prevent others from going down the same path. This tradition continues today in Narconon centers in the US, Russia, Taiwan, Italy and other countries.
