Nashville, TN, May 26, 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 past week, volunteers participated in a Recovery Congregations event put on by the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services. They distributed the Truth About Drugs booklets and talked with people about how to get this information out to students and young people.
“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.
