At each event, the SNZD volunteers team distribute about 1500 booklets The Truth About Drugs, providing also as needed to teachers, educators, members of institutions, a documentary DVD with video clips and testimonies and/or a Guide containing 19 lessons.
Successful locations are: in the center of Vienna, the first district, on Schwedenplatz , the Mill Tower, nearby the metro stations, places having a lot of passer-bys and visitors. The youngsters and adults were sometimes asked to express themselves about drug through paintings and writings. The people, including the police, were very appreciative of these actions.
