Drug-Free Lives

There are many people and many organizations today, who dedicatedly fight drug abuse. We all know that drugs are the plague of modern society.

Drugs have ruined countless millions of lives since the drug culture was popularized in the 1960s.

And, we also all know that illicit drugs are a multibillion-dollar industry flooding the world market with everything from marijuana to heroin, cocaine and synthetic “designer drugs.“

There are effective drug abuse programs. Narconon, which uses the technology L. Ron Hubbard developed for handling drug dependancy, works. It has over 70% success rate. Narconon has training available for anyone or any group that wishes to implement this technology in their own drug rehab program. Narconon also performs a quality control function for any groups implementing their methodology, to make sure it is done standardly and it gets the expected results.

There is no reason to become desperate and hopeless about drugs, even if you or a person you care about is addicted.

“The only time anyone has ever gotten into serious trouble was when he decided he could do nothing about something.” L. Ron Hubbard

"Clear Body Clear Mind" by L. Ron Hubbard

Drugs damage not just the health, but the personality and ability to think clearly, too.

I want to mention a book, Clear Body Clear Mind --The Effective Purification Program, which has the description of L. Ron Hubbard's groundbreaking discoveries in this field.

Here is what Dr. David Root, M.D. and James Barnes, Health Physicist, say about the book:

"As a Bachelor of Medicine, I found it very interesting to study the Purification program. I found it so interesting that I began the program at the Church of Scientology.

"“After completing the program, I noticed a tremendous upsurge in physical and mental well-being."

I suggest you visit Celebrity Center International's website, to learn more about this very interesting and important program.

Saving Lives

I do beleive, that if we truly educate our youth on the subject of drug and their dangers we can create a drug-free generation.

I found this at the web site of Scientology Celebrity Center International:

"... by providing drug education services to hundreds of youth at a time, they can be prevented from taking drugs in the first place. Done on an international scale, we can create a drug-free generation. "

The Website gives a short description of what Narconon (means no-drug) does to achieve this purpose:

"Narconon also provides comprehensive training to other professionals and organizations who seek workable drug rehabilitation and prevention solutions.

"The establishment, known as Narconon Arrowhead, is also home of the organization’s International Training Academy, where the successful drug rehabilitation methodology — both its administrative and technical expertise — is made available to other professionals, drug treatment organizations and governments."

I strongly recommend to everybody who is interested in anti-drug campaigns, whether actively doing something or sympathize with the purpose, to read this website titled Saving Lives.

Answer to Drugs, by L. Ron Hubbard

Here is a booklet that I really like and think would be a good tool for anyone having trouble with drug abuse personally or who knows someone with a drug or alcohol problem. Scientology Handbook Booklet on Answers to drugs

The discoveries in the booklet, Answer to Drugs, by L. Ron Hubbard, has salvaged lives ruined by drug and alcohol abuse.

It includes the real reason behind substance abuse -- the truth about how drugs affect the human spirit and mind.

This booklet is used by Scientology Volunteer Ministers to help others.

They are chapters of the book The Scientology Handbook.

Scientologists in the Czech Republic Say NO to Drugs, Say YES to Life

Here is a news article that I like about a Cyclorun that was done in the Czech Republic last year:

"Scientologists in the Czech Republic showed their commitment to ending drug abuse by participating in their third annual Cyclorun earlier this year.

"Cyclorun (a composite of cycling and running) is a term coined by members of the Czech Say NO to Drugs, Say YES to Life group. It describes the actions of the athletes who ran through the towns they visited and then cycled to the next town or city, all the while distributing fliers and booklets about drugs and delivering lectures to children on the harmful effects of drugs. They also promoted their new web site that tells the truth about marijuana at , and met with city officials everywhere they went, getting support and signatures from mayors, senators and other officials on their Towns Without Drugs proclamation.

"The athletes were inspired to participate in the Cyclorun by the fact that the Czech Republic has more young users of marijuana than any other country in Europe.

"This year’s anti-drug Cyclorun started in the town of Hodonin, just a few meters from the Slovakia border and ended 2 weeks later in Prague on June 26th, the United Nations International Day Against Drug Abuse. The Cyclorun covered over 1430 kilometers, visited 40 towns and cities, and delivered anti-drug lectures to over 600 children, gaining enthusiastic support everywhere they traveled."

Crystal Meth (Methamphetamine)

Here is some important information about Crystal Meth.

“Trying this drug out” has been known to cause instant addiction.

It is NOT something to experiment with.

Musicians Work for Drug-Free Life

Here's a group of great musicians who are dedicated to drug prevention.

"The Jive Aces have supported the Church of Scientology’s “Say No To Drugs, Say Yes To Life” campaign for many years, giving concerts all over the world to raise awareness of the dangers of drugs and the solutions to the drug problem. When asked about the band’s strong anti-drug stance, lead singer Ian Clarkson said, 'People look up to musicians and see them taking drugs and think that they then have to use them to be a great artist. What they don’t realize is that without drugs they would be a lot happier, play a lot better and live a lot longer'."

Check out the Jive Aces Website and you see how it works. It does work.

Most people agree that drugs are dangerous – so much so that the current popular model is to reduce the harm from drugs, as individuals, groups and governments have become disillusioned about being able to help an addict overcome his or her addiction and live drug-free once he or she has become dependant on drugs. This is particularly gruesome what you consider that drugs like crystal meth are known to be addictive if even taken once.

However, harm reduction is a failure. It doesn’t reduce the number of people whose lives are ruined.

The point is that harm reduction is NOT the only solution. There ARE effective programs. Particularly Narconon, which uses the drug rehabilitation methods developed by L. Ron Hubbard.

Here is the story of one person who overcame his drug dependency.

"Today, drugs are no longer ruining my life, several years ago it was a different story. But then a friend introduced me to L. Ron Hubbard’s drug rehabilitation methods which enabled me to stop using drugs—forever...."

"I have discovered that I have a lot to give this world, and I am now winning in life and happier than ever."
– R.H.

Successful Campaign on Drug Prevention

I'd like to share some information about “Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Life”— a community-based drug education and drug prevention program. The purpose is to educate children and adults about the dangers of drugs. You can read more data about why this education program is successful, on the website The Truth About Drugs.

Here is a short quote: "The program acts through clubs run by and for young people. These clubs reinforce a positive message of drug-free living through the distribution of educational literature that provides facts about illicit drug use and the effects of drugs on the spirit, mind and body. Through the support of civic leaders and members of other groups with similar aims, “Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Life” groups effectively popularize drug-free living. "

More information on the anti-drug programs sponsored by Scientology churches can be found at the Drug Salvage web site.

About Silent Birth

Yesterday I blogged on drug-free child delivery using a quote from a new web site on silent birth. There is more to learn about this subject. See these quotes below:

"It is a widely-accepted fact that bringing a baby into the world in a calm and gentle environment is vital to the happiness and health of the child." quote from the Website Silent Birth.

“So a child should have a very quiet prenatal period, and should have a silent, as painless as possible, birth.,” and, “the delivery itself should carry as little anesthetic as possible, be as calm and no-talk as possible.” L. Ron Hubbard

Drug-Free Campaign

Here is a link to a Scientology anti-drug campaign that works with young kids and educates them about drugs and gets them to make a commitment not to experiment with them. With youth using drugs at younger and younger ages, this is a really important program.

Scientology Church Says San Diego is “Drug-Free Marshals Territory”

Like the marshals of the Wild West, who were trusted to maintain the safety and security of their territories, the Drug-Free Marshals keep their neighborhoods safe for kids, through informing them of the harmful effects of drugs

Drug-Free Marshals

My church is committed to handling the drug problem. One of the programs Scientology churches sponsor is aimed at kids, because the terrible fact is that drug use is starting at younger and younger ages, and children need to be made aware of the harm they cause so they can decide for themselves not to experiment with them.

There is information on the Drug-Free Marshals on the Scientology Anti-Drug web site. Here's some information on this:

"One of the most popular Scientology anti-drug programs is the Drug-Free Marshals (known as the Drug-Free Ambassadors in Australia and New Zealand and Drug-Free Kids in the UK).
'Drug-Free Marshals is based on the idea that if peer pressure and pro-drug propaganda can influence young people to take drugs, the reverse would work too,' said Reverend Jentzsch. 'The program provides the truth about drugs and a forum where youth can take a stand against drug use.'"

Crack Cocaine - Why you Should Leave it Alone

Lest anyone think drugs only affect the young or the poor, here's a story that was in the news in Glasgow, Scotland the other day about Crack Cocaine reaching into the affluent "respectable" levels of society.

"Flamboyant Philip Mangan was once a director of five businesses, lived in a £750,000 house and exported valuables around the world.

"But last week he admitted blowing more than £100,000 of his fortune on crack cocaine and sleazy parties with hookers."

"Mangan, 59, said: "I took cocaine for 15 years, spending hundreds of pounds a week. I was out of control. It got to the stage I couldn't run my business."

One of the things my church does is massive distribution of drug education materials, particularly to youth. We have found that when young people get the facts about drugs it arms them against the peer pressure they get to experiment with them.

Here's something from the Scientology anti-drug web site describing the program.

"For more than two decades, the Church of Scientology’s worldwide drug education campaign has provided the truth about drugs to hundreds of millions across the globe.

"With tens of thousands of public awareness concerts and athletic activities, and thousands of newspaper, television and radio messages reaching millions—combined with the distribution of more than 100 million drug education booklets, fliers, posters and literature—this is the largest anti-drug campaign in the world.

"The war against drugs begins with education.

"Join the “Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Life” campaign and help build drug-free communities. Take the pledge and start a club in your community.

Drug Education

The Scientology Drug Solutions web site has good tips on drug education, which has been found to be a good way to prevent kids getting into the trap of drug abuse:

Experience has taught us that people in general, and youth in particular, when they understand the destructive effects of drugs, and when they are provided with activities to interact with positive role models, and when they have the support of their peers to remain drug free, they inevitably come to the conclusion: “I don’t want to take drugs”....

Why do people start taking drug?

Every person who abused drugs started taking them because he was experiencing a precise condition — a physical affliction, a situation in his life, or unwanted emotions such as sadness or boredom — from which he could find no physical or spiritual relief. He found that drugs removed his symptoms or numbed his feelings about what was troubling him.

There is way to a drug-free life. Find out more about how the drug problem can be solved.

Drug addiction is like slavery. The drugs take over your life.

Naconon uses the drug rehabilitation technology of L. Ron Hubbard. It can help someone who is addicted to drugs get his life back.

Here's an example of what one person gained from doing the program.

"This is a program that truly showed me that I am powerful, that I can repair the past and that all the happiness I ever hope to find is within myself. This program not only showed me how to stay off of drugs, it did just what it promised, it gave me a new life. If you're at the end of your rope and you're ready to put in some good, honest hard work to make a change for the better, without drugs, Narconon is hands down the best drug rehabilitation drug program on the planet, period. I've been clean for 3 years now and I owe it all to my grandmother for getting me to Narconon and to Narconon and Mr. Benitez and Mr. Hubbard."

Some things you may not know:

Marijuana is one of the most widely used illegal drugs in the United States.

Many people mistakenly believe smoking marijuana is no more dangerous than drinking beer. Is it? What are the effects?

Here is the truth about marijuana and hashish (click the link) so that people can separate out for themselves the facts about these drugs from the confusing — and often false — opinions they may have heard.

The Scientology Anti-Drug web site contains information on this and other drugs, and suggestions for effective ways to deal with the problem.

Dancing with Ecstasy?

Ecstasy is one of the most popular drugs among young people today. It is estimated that more than 2.8 million teenagers have tried the drug at least once and many go on to become regular users despite the known dangers of taking it.

Ecstasy is a “designer drug” usually found at raves — those extended dance parties that feature electronic music and high-tech light shows and often casual drug abuse.

Raves are often held in large, unsupervised locations such as abandoned warehouses, parks and railroad yards, but sometimes take place in more conventional settings such as nightclubs. Up to several thousand people at a time, usually teenagers, may attend and a rave can last up to two or three days. Ecstasy suppresses the need to eat and sleep, so users can endure these extended parties; however, ravers sometimes experience severe dehydration or exhaustion.

Learn the truth for yourself and make up your own mind about ecstasy before you make a mistake you may live to regret.
