Church of Scientology Fighting Teen Drug Abuse
Date:2/12/2009

The Church of Scientology is targeting one of the most harmful forms of teen drug abuse with a hard-hitting public service announcement about the illicit use of prescription drugs.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 12, 2009 -- Statistics show a dangerous trend in prescription drug abuse, particularly among teens. In Arizona, the local office of the DEA announced this week that Phoenix high school students abuse prescription drugs more than hard drugs like cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine. Police in West Virginia announced yesterday that 75% of teens at one middle school have been exposed to prescription drug abuse. And a story earlier this week pointed out that sixty percent of Wisconsin teenagers have access to controlled substances in and around their homes and 20 percent of them have abused them to get high. Only yesterday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced plans to reduce the risks of illicit use of pain medication, citing a 2007 survey showing that in one month, 5.2 million Americans aged 12 or older used prescription pain meds for non-medical purposes.

Because Scientology churches around the world carry out grass roots activities to help youth make informed choices about drugs, the Church of Scientology International became aware of the serious threat prescription drug abuse presents to today's youth and created a public service announcement to raise awareness of the problem to help reverse this trend. This edgy 1-minute video impacts teens, exposing the lie that prescription drug abuse is "safe" or "trendy" by showing its fatal consequences.
