I am really pleased that our young people and families are getting true information about drugs and I want to do many more of these seminars.”

CLEARWATER, FL, US, November 28, 2018 / -- On November 20th, the Foundation for a Drug-Free World (FDFW) Florida chapter held a seminar at the Clearwater Martin Luther King Jr. Neighborhood Center for over 20 youth and adults from the Clearwater Greenwood neighborhood. The presentation was based on the Foundation’s “Truth About Drugs” education materials. FDFW noted that Greenwood has the highest juvenile crime statistics of any neighborhood in Clearwater.

“These are very important events for all of us,” explained Julieta Santagostino, President of FDFW Florida Chapter. “The key to handling the drug problem is education. If we can teach young people the truth about the danger of drugs, they can make the right decisions.”

The presentation began with a video of the first chapter of The Truth About Drugs documentary in which former addicts reveal the lies that pulled them into their drug addiction and the truths they realized. The children participated in the event by sharing stories and giving examples of how drugs affect the lives of their friends and families. Fact-based educational booklets on the general problems with drugs were enthusiastically grabbed up, as were copies of the Truth About Drugs documentary DVD. Afterwards, the young attendees signed the Drug-Free Pledge.

The President of the MLK Center, Mr. Anthony Burney, said, “I am really pleased that our young people and families are getting true information about drugs and I want to do many more of these seminars.”

“The presentation was really great. We are always glad for these community type events,” said one of the attendees. “No one can deal with the drug problem by themselves. Days like today you get renewed hope, like we’re all in this together.”

Anyone needing more information, or wishing to obtain free copies of the Truth About Drugs educational materials may stop by the Foundation for Drug-Free World information center at 41 N. Fort Harrison Ave, Clearwater, FL 33755. They can also call (727) 467-6962 or email
