Narconon Suncoast Brings Drug-Free Summer Message to Families at Downtown Block Party

PRESS RELEASE JUL 27, 2016 09:19 EDT

 

pressreleaseJuly2016Drug education has always been one of the core missions of the Narconon facility. The Drug Education program utilized by Narconon programs focus on providing real information about the harmful effects of drug use in an enjoyable, fun, and entertaining format.

Clearwater, FL, July 27, 2016 (Newswire.com) – Narconon Suncoast shared its drug prevention message with hundreds of Clearwater families this weekend at the first annual Downtown Clearwater Block Party. All too often summer brings countless opportunities for children to experiment with drugs and alcohol and start unhealthy habits that lead to addiction. Nearly a million teens will have their first drink of alcohol and more than 150,000 will start using marijuana. Countering this, Narconon Suncoast opened its “Count on Me to be Drug-Free” booth at the first annual Downtown Clearwater Block Party.

Children enjoyed the drug prevention information, signed a Drug-Free Pledge and picked up school supplies for the coming year. “Nothing is more important than parents giving their kids a consistent, drug-free message at home” said Yvonne Rodgers, spokesperson for Narconon Suncoast. “The messages I heard at my school were confusing and often piqued kids’ curiosity about drugs, rather than giving them the truth about drugs. When I saw the Narconon drug prevention materials, I knew that this straight-up, realistic message was what is often missing to help parents start what can be an uncomfortable conversation.”

With new varieties of synthetic drugs and marijuana becoming more plentiful in every neighborhood, Narconon Suncoast is doubling its prevention efforts and offering more prevention materials on-line. The goal is to reach children with factual prevention information for all the drugs youth might encounter. Drug trends change so rapidly that youth must be aware of the dangers of all drugs, not just a few.

Narconon’s drug-free summer program also includes complimentary parent education seminars at their center on Sunset Point Road in Clearwater and weekly Living Sober meetings in Dunedin for those in recovery. These meetings and seminars help reinforce the key factors to living a healthy, drug-free life. The Living Sober meetings also provide drug prevention information for families and coaching on how to talk to a loved one about an addiction. August’s topic is Helping vs. Enabling an Addict. All are welcome to attend. To learn the schedule for these meetings, contact Narconon Suncoast.
