About the "10 Things That Your Friends ..."

If we educate the kids early enough on what drugs really are about, we can help them decide not to use drugs. Give kids a chance. If all they hear is propaganda from friends about how cool drugs are, what chance do they have to make a sensible decision.

If you are a parent, or if you know someone who needs the fact about drugs, here's a great site. Canadian Narconon Drug Education.

Help for Parents

I don't overly emphasize the situation, it is already dramatic enough. But, everybody who is a parent has to realize, that our kids are in danger.

Below is a testimonial from a mother, who's son got hooked on meth. Thanks to Narconon Canada the story had a happy ending. Here's what the mother wrote about this:

"When he was young, he was energetic. He had a lot of life in him. He was doing pretty good in school. He had gotten some place and he was very happy. He was looking forward to a future.
"That all changed. He started using pot and afterwards got into a few other drugs and alcohol."

Question: Do you know how he was first introduced to crystal meth?

"I think it was just the people that he was hanging out with and the things in his life that had happened. He grew up in a disfunctional family and he went in the same direction.
"He started running the streets a lot. In high school actually, that's when I think it first started with the crystal meth. Then he started selling drugs, in fact crack and cocaine, just to support his crystal meth habit. "

Question: "How did he eventually overcome his crystal meth addiction?"

"He went into a program, a program called Narconon." ....
"He did a detoxification program while on this program, and even though it was a bit difficult for him, he got through it. He eventually was clean. I hadn't seen him like that for years look that good. The white of his eyes were white, they weren't discoloured. The smile. I guess the smile is the biggest thing. He was back to being Will, the guy before the drugs. I had my son back."

Truth about Ecstasy

Narconon International
is warning youth of the dangers of Ecstasy in a promotional campaign that will save lives. Here is one of their recent press releases.

The popularity of Ecstasy has expanded even to isolated areas such as Guam and the Marianas Islands. According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, Ecstasy appears to be the fastest growing problem in that part of the world. States such as Hawaii, Alabama, Washington and New York continue to experience high levels of abuse."

We are at 2006. The age of high speed communication. Does anyone believe, that it should also be the era of high speed expansion of drug abuse?

Obviously not. What needs to happen is education and prevention with high speed. Here is an other quote from the same article:

"Recent studies have shown that effective drug education programs can reduce the demand for this drug. Narconon has responded by releasing the drug education video Xtasy, the Real Story. It is tailored to meet the needs of young people who are often seduced by “hype” and peer pressure while remaining ignorant of the facts. Former Ecstasy dealers and users share their actual experiences, including what happens to a dealer's life and the fate of his friends and customers."

Narconon Canada in Trois Rivieres, Quebec

This press release from Narconon Canada tells quite a chilling story about the effects of Crystal Meth, and tells of a program that is effective in helping abusers of this drug come off and stay off:

TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec, May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Today's society is oppressed with several urgent issues, yet the drug addiction problem and the substantially increasing abuse of crystal meth fails to rank as a major concern. Although the general perception of an individual who is afflicted with a drug addiction is one of disdain and of worthlessness, they still deserve to be cared for. These individuals simply fell under the grasp of a vicious and ruthless drug, ridding them of any lucid judgment and of their conscientious perception of life. It has been reported on numerous occasions by former addicts that crystal meth, a highly toxic and addictive substance, has this unconditional power to "hook" someone only after their first use. Yet what could push someone to try such a hazardous drug?

The enthralling and promising side effects, notably increased energy, a reduced need to eat or sleep, super focus, increased productivity and euphoria, make a crystal meth high appear very satisfying. Nevertheless, crystal meth is anything but a harmless drug. Created from toxic chemicals, the side effects include an increased heart rate, insomnia, shakiness, fever, chest pain, paranoia, confusion, psychotic episodes, violence and death. Many crystal meth addicts report having difficulty quitting, since their body's need for the drug is so incredibly strong.

Will, a former crystal meth addict for 2 years now, gave a thorough testimony demonstrating the difficulties he encountered while under the influence of the drug and the several obstacles he faced to overcome his crystal meth addiction: "I couldn't admit that I was a junkie. I couldn't admit that I had a problem. Everybody said, 'You're turning into a junkie Will,' and I would respond, 'I'm fine, I'm alright.' But then my behaviour started to change and the days got longer. The weeks ended up being actual full weeks."

Before going into rehab, Will witnessed how he had changed both physically and mentally, due to the crystal meth: "When people are on crystal meth, they eventually become very volatile and they can hurt people. They can snap very easily for no reason. On any given day, I really could have hurt somebody, supremely bad, but my choices were either to hurt somebody or get high."

Fortunately, there is a drug rehabilitation and treatment center that is capable of treating a crystal meth addiction. This 100-percent natural drug rehabilitation program, offered by Narconon, is an effective and proven method, renowned worldwide, for helping individuals overcome their drug addiction. If someone you know and care for is affected by crystal meth, don't hesitate to contact Narconon.

"If you're ready to try any drugs out there, well you might as well try every way to save your life," said Will.

Narconon uses the drug rehabilitation technology of L. Ron Hubbard.

What is Narconon Arrowhead?

There is an organization called Narconon Arrowhead, which provides and entirely drug-free rehabilitation program to those suffering from drug or alcohol addiction, using the technology developed by L. Ron Hubbard.

If you or someone you care for is suffering from drug or alcohol addiction, your best chance to get back your life or to save the life of your friend or loved one is the drug-free drug rehab program at Narconon Arrowhead.

Here is a testimonial from their website. Visit the Narconon Arrowhead website. What written there is true, it is happening, it is happening now, people get rehabilitated, back to life, happy and productive.

"My son was a bright talented child. He learned to play the guitar and had a natural ability to draw and paint. In his teens something happened to this bright talented child. I found out later that he had gotten into drugs and barely finished high school. He could not hold a job and his only financial support was a family who "gave him money to keep him away". This went on for twelve years in which time he was a waste to himself and others. After trying numerous "Drug Rehab Programs" I found Narconon Arrowhead. I took him there as an emaciated "end of the trail person". In a short time he regained his health and became himself again. Most importantly he became free of drugs. My son now has a family of his own. He is very productive in working with others to help them gain their own self esteem back and to become free of the ravages of drug use. My son and I have never been closer or had such a good relationship as father and son. Narconon Arrowhead not only gave my son back to me, but also gave me a very good friend."

Revitalizing the Individual in a Polluted and Drugged World

L. Ron Hubbard made important discoveries that affect all of us, as we live in a completely poluted world.

According to the Purification Program web site:

"...residues from drugs and other toxins lodge in the fatty tissues of the body and stay there, even years after they have been ingested, and that these residues can continue to affect the individual adversely long after the effect of the drug has apparently worn off. Such deposits have been known to cause lessened perception, tiredness, confused thinking"

The site includes a complete description of how drugs effect the body, but more importantly how one can purify his/her body thus be able to live a drug and toxin free life.

Here is the link to this website:

Information for Parents - Helping Kids Stay Off Drugs

Communicating to kids about drugs is a problem for most parents -- how can you explain the danger of drugs to a kid -- especially if the relationship is already strained. What if the child is touchy and annoyed. Does this mean they ae already taking drugs? Will you push them further away by bringing it up?

The real underlying problem most parents have in communicating with their kids about drugs is the problem they have communicating with their kids. Period.

Scientology churches offer very simple courses to improve your communication. I've even known of parents and kids doing this course together. It's pretty remarkable what happens as a result. It's saved kids parents untold heartache and saved kids' lives.

The Correct Scientology website has more information on how to establish strong relationships with kids.

The Scientology Anti-drug Campaign? Support it!

I found a blog from a fellow, who is a Volunteer Minister. He actively fights drug and helps his community on every way he can.

This is what he writes:

"I know some guys have done drugs because of the stress of being a student, but that is not the answer, that's a cop out. There are other solutions that I use, something called study technology. The first thing to deal with is knowing how to study. "

His site is called The Scientology Anti-drug Campaign
What is behind the success of the Narconon drug rehabilitation?

“The addict has been found not to want to be an addict, but is driven by pain and environmental hopelessness...As soon as an addict can feel healthier and more competent mentally and physically without drugs than he does on drugs, he ceases to require drugs.” L. Ron Hubbard

Some information how it works: the Narconon program a “therapeutic community,” but it would be more appropriate to say that Narconon clients are going “back to school”–this time to get real tools for real life.

The program steps are entirely drug-free; that is, the Narconon program does not use drugs or medications to solve the problems caused by drugs, but does use nutrition and nutritional supplements as an important component of its delivery. Thus the program is neither a psychiatric nor medical, but a social education model of rehabilitation.

Mr. David Miscavige speaks of the importance and effectiveness of the Narconon program in his presentation entitled "This is Scientology."

What is Narconon?

It is a
non-profit drug rehab program dedicated to eliminating drug abuse and drug addiction through drug prevention, education and rehabilitation.

The way Narconon was founded is interesting. According to the Narconon Website it all started some 40 years ago.

Many former drug addicts who were rehabilitated through Narconon all those many years ago are still involved -- working to help other drug addicts.

This is from the Narconon web site:

"William Benitez, an inmate of Arizona State Prison, founded the NARCONON program in 1966. Benitez read a book by American author L. Ron Hubbard, and by applying the principles it contained on increasing one's abilities, he
and dozens of other inmates were able to permanently end their addictions to heroin. The Narconon program has evolved from that simple beginning to a worldwide network of drug prevention and drug-free social education rehabilitation centers."

There's a lot more information on the Narconon website, which is especially useful if you have a family member who needs help.

More on Tom Cruise

I found this story about Tom Cruise supporting an anti-drug group in New Zealand. This happened when he was filming The Last Samuri in that country a few years ago:

"McLearly, volunteer coordinator of Drug-Free Ambassadors, a Scientology drug-education and prevention group active in New Zealand for three years, received a letter from Tom Cruise, in New Zealand shooting a film, saying he was inspired by reading about the group’s dedication to educating young people about drugs. 'We are absolutely thrilled and so proud Tom Cruise supports the Drug-Free Ambassadors ...'"

Drug Prevention Program

The most effective action in handling drugs is prevention. Narconon International has a very effective program, that can be implemented anywhere, and requires no extreme investment but can be developed as a community coalition.

With minimal financial and staffing resources one can establish an effective program that reaches thousands of youth in the community each week. A Narconon drug prevention program can be started with a basic complement of three or four staff, and build to a large center from there.

Learn more about this program at the Narconon International Drug Prevention website.

Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Life program

What do kids do, when they participate in the "Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Life" program?

"This weekend four youngsters clubbed together to clean up litter around East Grinstead, starting with Mount Noddy car park and the nearby alleyway and finishing at the East Grinstead Railway Station car park."

It's a pleasure to see the photos of these kids, how they look when they are actively working on bettering the environment. And the good news is that this activity can be originated and started everywhere.
