The Foundation for a Drug-Free World envisions a world without drug abuse and by a simple yet powerful program is making a difference in the lives of many families and individual youths.  A drug-free world is created one person at a time, starting with that person learning the truth about drugs and making an informed decision not to take them.

The next step is a drug-free community, created by individuals working together to popularize drug-free living in their families, schools, churches, orkplaces, neighborhoods, towns and cities. The Drug-Free World Foundation provides multimedia materials and copies of these informational booklets to assist individuals and groups with these activities. You can find these materials free of charge by visiting their website at www.drugfreeworld.org .
