Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Mental Health, Substance Abuse Dependency, Prevention & Treatment

Mission: 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. No one, especially a young person, likes to be lectured about what he or she can or cannot do. Thus, we provide the facts that empower youth to choose not to take drugs in the first place. Additionally our Truth About Drugs campaign consists of activities that they can join which popularize drug-free living. These activities are simple, effective and can involve people of all ages. Through a worldwide network of volunteers, 56 million educational handouts have been distributed, tens of thousands of drug awareness events have been held in some 120 countries and Truth About Drugs public service announcements have been aired on 275 television stations. These materials and activities have helped people around the world learn about the destructive side effects of drugs and thereby make the decision for themselves to not use them. The Foundation provides information you need to start a Truth About Drugs education and prevention activity in your area.

This Foundation helps alot of people from New York to Haiti. The Founders, a daughter and father team, have been awarded by heads of States as well as heads of very large organizations for the very well done job they have done and carried out through many countries. They have definitely earned my respect. They continue to do great works especially in the city of New York and the country of Haiti.

Absolutely amazing tools to educate kids on what drugs really are and how they really work. I had a 16 year old boy walk up to me and say “I read drug-Free World’s booklet on Marijuana and realized I didn’t need to do it anymore, that it was hurting me and making my life worse”.

Foundation for a Drug Free World is the ONLY education program of its kind that offers FREE drug prevention education and top-notch materials to schools, governments, law enforcement and groups. And the best part is, it is operated totally by volunteers.

I really admire their dedication and selflessness. I see how much time and personal funding by the volunteers themselves goes into this. There are so many good people falling prey to drugs and they work relentlessly to eradicate this scourge.

This nonprofit is a front group for the Church of Scientology whose sole purpose is to create photo opportunities that make it seem as if the Church is helping the world, but those photo ops are only used to get more and more donation money out of the Scientology members. Btw, all of these positive reviews are written by Scientology members at the behest of the CoS.

This is one of the few and very detailed programs that actually get the young people thinking and acting.

I am an educator in the city of New York and I have seen the incredibly large benefits that this program has in our young people.

Thank you so much for your hard work.

Very useful for educators as a source of information for children of all ages. I have had educators request the entire kit with the posters, booklets and videos to use in seminars to middle and high school aged groups of children in New Jersey.

This organization does an amazing job of informing students about the harmful effects of drugs and really makes an impact on the children whom many I am sure have vowed and have been more certain not to take drugs.

I find this non-profit organization to be extremely useful solely for the knowledge that is provided to students through this program. Students are being educated on the "Truth About Drugs" everyday, giving them powerful insight into a drug culture that can change their life forever.

The people who worked for this foundation was very king and helped kids from other schools to understand the truth about drugs in a very interactive and fun manner.

The foundation tells people & kids, the truth so they can decide. I wish they had been around when I was young -- no one told us drugs were bad and then the 70s hit... I saw so many people waste years of their life high on drugs.

I only wish these materials had been there when I was growing up. These children need to know the facts about these drugs so they can make their decisions and be able to be strong in the face of those who push them. This site is SO valuable to show that many can be reached and what that means for our young.

In the New York area 1000s of drug prevention booklets have been distributed and drug awareness events have been held in schools. These materials and activities have helped people around learn about the destructive side effects of drugs and thereby make the decision for themselves to not use them.
