The Church of Scientology sponsors humanitarian and educational campaigns to encourage compassionate solutions to issues facing humanity. There is no effort more important—or more challenging—than addressing the global epidemic of drug abuse. The scourge of drugs has devastated families in every culture of the world, leaving pain and suffering not only among millions of drug addicts, but among the hundreds of millions whose lives are adversely affected by the addictions of others.
The Church’s decades–long fight to alleviate the human misery and economic consequences associated with drug abuse has led to one of the most successful, non-government–funded and promoted anti–drug crusades in the world—one focused on prevention of drug use. These efforts towards a drug–free world have been built from the ground up to partner with police, educators and governments to bring “The Truth About Drugs” to those facing temptation.
Ireland’s own struggles with street and prescription drug abuse are as significant as those anywhere across the globe. There are only too frequent news stories relating to overdoses and deaths, heroin needles littering community streets and the preventable destruction of human life. All are symptoms of this plague.
The Church of Scientology, through its Foundation for a Drug–Free World, has created effective ways to address drug prevention through education that are endorsed by such police agencies as the US Drug Enforcement Administration. More than 2,100 law enforcement agencies and police departments all over the world use The Truth About Drugs programme. Already, we’ve distributed hundreds of thousands of The Truth About Drugs materials across Dublin, as evidence of our efforts to assist those adversely affected.
We look forward to working together with all groups and individuals who share the goal of a
“THE FOUNDATION FOR A DRUG-FREE WORLD HAS EMPOWERED COUNTLESS CHILDREN, YOUTH AND ADULTS TO MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS AND LIVE DRUG-FREE. IN THE FOUNDATION FOR A DRUG-FREE WORLD WE HAVE AN ORGANISATION WORTHY OF OUR HIGHEST TRUST AND ESTEEM.”
