Drug Education Saves Lives, Prevents Drug Abuse

Families Spared Ravages of Drug Abuse and Drug Addiction.

A drug rehab has found that it is important to not only treat drug addiction, but also prevent drug abuse in young people.

Narconon Drug Rehab of Georgia, a long term drug treatment program, continues to provide drug education to the Boys and Girls Club in Atlanta. Two hundred and fifty children recently learned about the harmful effects of drugs through a lively presentation of the “Ten Things Your Friends May Not Know About Drugs.”

In the classes given by the drug rehab, the kids learned how drugs affect the mind, make a person slow or stupid, dull the senses and destroy creativity. They also learned that ecstasy is one of the most dangerous drugs and marijuana is not as innocent as some are led to believe.

A Director of a Boys and Girls Club applauded Narconon Drug Rehab, stating in a recent letter; “As youth-development professionals, we have an obligation to make sure our young people are receiving quality programs that aide them in correcting their bad habits and decision making. Your program has changed the whole mind set of our young people. They no longer view drug use as a recreational past time. This program has taught my teenagers the responsibility of taking care of their bodies, mind, and building healthy relationships with their peers.
