The best solution to the drug problem is education.

Much of what kids hear on the streets about drugs comes from those selling them. The Foundation for a Drug-Free World provides educators with practical tools to give youth solid facts which enable them to choose to lead drug-free lives all on their own.

No one questions the severity of the drug problem and its devastating impact on youth. Academic results suffer and, even worse, drugs undermine health and destroy young lives.

The best solution is to reach young people with effective, fact-based drug education—before they start experimenting with drugs. Tweens, teens and young adults who know the facts about drugs are much less likely to start using them.

This application provides the full Truth About Drugs Education materials at your fingertips, and contains practical tools to educate young people about substance abuse.

The core of the Foundation’s education program consists of the 1 hour and 42 minute documentary, The Truth About Drugs: Real People—Real Stories.

The documentary is supplemented by thirteen drug information booklets and award-winning public service announcements. All of these videos and booklets are available for display or download in-app at any time, for use in any teaching environment whether online or offline.

This Truth About Drugs Education application is the ideal supplemental aid. It fills the growing demand for practical tools to help the teacher, instructor or drug prevention specialist communicate the truth about drugs swiftly and effectively.

The application features full lesson plans, assignments and classroom activities that capture and retain young people's attention—and elicit their participation. Students willingly read, view and, most importantly, use the information to make the right choices about drugs.
