Anti-Drug Booklet Created by Talented Youth Just Released by Narconon

(PRWEB) July 25, 2013

Experts agree that peer pressure is one of the primary forces that encourages young people to start using drugs. The National Institute on Drug Abuse, as an example, focuses on how to resist this influence on their website for youth, "NIDA for Teens." Many other groups, such as the United Nations and the Mayo Clinic, publish advice on how youth can be protected from this pressure. In Southern California, however, Narconon Drug Prevention & Education, a drug abuse prevention program, puts peer pressure to good use with the publication of a new coloring book, Make Your Goals Come True, Say No to Drugs! Say Yes to Life!

The 16-page booklet, with 35 quality and fun illustrations by local young artists, advises youth how they can achieve their goals. The back cover is dedicated to the eight young artists who volunteered their time to the project with a picture and short bio for each. For these young artists, this project contributed to the achievement of their own goals. One young woman enjoys volunteering, and a young man believes you should treat others as you would want to be treated. Some of these youth want to go on to have careers in art while another wants join the Marines and another wants to become an architect.

The creator of the project is the Executive Director of Narconon Drug Prevention & Education, Sigal Adini.

"I wanted to give young people an opportunity to help their peers and communities in truly meaningful ways," Sigal said. "These artists are to be highly commended for their contribution. They did it because they care."

Each page of the booklet includes a brief lesson on what young people can do to ensure they are able to realize their own dreams. The lessons include advice to work hard to achieve goals, take care of one’s health, learn new skills and practice them, and stay away from harmful drugs. The second page of the booklet is devoted to a Spanish translation of the inside text for parents who do not speak English, so they will be able to follow along and communicate with their children about the lessons.

Sigal has received enthusiastic responses to be booklets she has distributed to Boys and Girls Clubs, a local Council Member’s Office, the LAPD cadet program, churches, health fairs and other events, most of them in the Northeast San Fernando Valley.
