The Truth About Drugs by the Foundation FOR A DRUG-FREE WORLD

Who we are?

The Foundation for a Drug-Free World is a nonprofit public benefit corporation that empowers youth and adults with factual information about drugs so they can make informed decisions and live drug-free.

What we do?

No one, especially a young person, likes to be lectured about what he or she can or cannot do. Thus, we provide the facts that empower youth to choose not to take drugs in the first place. Additionally our Truth About Drugs campaign consists of activities that they can join which popularize drug-free living. These activities are simple, effective and can involve people of all ages.

International drug-education

Through a worldwide network of volunteers, 50 million of drug prevention booklets have been distributed, tens of thousands of drug awareness events have been held in some 180 countries and Truth About Drugs public service announcements have been aired on more than 500 television stations. These materials and activities have helped people around the world learn about the destructive side effects of drugs and thereby make the decision for themselves to not use them.

Our volunteers helped the London Olympic Games with educating the public.

The Information KIT

Exclusively for educators, law enforcement officers and other drug prevention specialists who teach students 11 years of age and above in classroom, group instruction or community learning settings.

The Information KIT presents the key elements of drug-education.
“The Truth About Drugs package was awesome. The booklets have been distributed to all fifty schools in the area. The DVD has been shown to Grade Six and up to Grade Twelve and has been met with very positive response. It is very, very informative and impacting.” - BL, Police Chief
"The program is very effective. In fact after the session two boys asked for further help and were referred to a local agency who works with youths taking drugs. It did affect their knowledge. They became more aware of the side effects. Comments from some of the students were ‘I will never touch drugs!’ ‘I’ll tell my friends about this!’" - CA, Teacher
