CLEARWATER, Fla. - March 5, 2020 - PRLog -- Members of the community who are making strides in the battle against drug abuse and drug addiction will be honored on Saturday April 25th, when the Foundation for a Drug-Free World's Florida Chapter will present their annual Drug Free Heroes Awards Banquet. The event begins at 5:30 and includes a complimentary buffet dinner and live entertainment. The event is being held at the Fort Harrison, the international religious retreat for the Church of Scientology. There is no cost to attend.

"Statistics on drug abuse are frustrating," said Julieta Santagostino, the President of the Foundation. "Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 130 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose. More than one person in Pinellas County dies every 37 hours from an opioid-related overdose."

"But there are people who are making a difference," said Ms. Santagostino, "and we are going to validate the victories and hopefully inspire others to join in this fight."

The Foundation for a Drug Free World disseminates the Truth About Drugs drug education program. This program utilizes drug education booklets, public service announcements and a feature-length documentary where former addicts vividly describe the drugs they were addicted to, how their addictions crippled their lives and how they were able to get the help they needed.

         Those being acknowledged on April the 25th have utilized the Drug Free World Program to help educate people so that they are steered away from drug abuse.

        For more information about the event, please contact the Foundation for a Drug Free World Florida at 727-467-6962.


The Foundation for a Drug-Free World is a nonprofit public benefit corporation that empowers youth and adults with factual information about drugs so they can make informed decisions and live drug-free. Scientology founder and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard wrote "Research has demonstrated that the single most destructive element present in our current culture is drugs." This, in turn, galvanized the Church and Scientologists to initiate the Truth About Drugs, a secular program through which they have worked with like-minded organizations for more than two decades to empower the millions with the truth about drugs.
