Nashville, TN, April 06, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Drug-Free Tennessee (DFT) is committed to ending the drug problem in the state. That is why each year, volunteers organize and participate in a series of events to bring awareness to this issue and combat usage. “If we can delete the demand, we can erase the problem,” says Regional Director of Drug-Free Tennessee, Rev. Brian Fesler.
In 2018, DFT volunteers are determined to reach more people than ever. This weekend, the chapter is hosting an event for World Health Day to bring awareness to this issue to the community, in addition to other health-related topics. Then over the summer, volunteers will distribute booklets at festivals, fairs and other events including International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, around the CMA Music Festival, and at National Night Out Against Crime.
“We need to go to all people, to get everyone this information on the truth about drugs,” says Fesler, “Drugs don’t discriminate - they affect everyone, everywhere. It’s time to end this epidemic.”
Drug-Free Tennessee is the local chapter of the Foundation for a Drug-Free World, an international nonprofit organization based in Los Angeles, California, with a focus on the elimination of drug and alcohol abuse and its resulting criminality. It distributes the Truth About Drugs booklet, which covers all basic side effects of drugs, common street names, and how to recognize when you are being persuaded by a dealer.
