Active Drug Prevention Across France


Along this month of February, the different French Say No To Drugs groups and associations (about a dozen), whatever the time: snow, rain, wind or sun were outside, contacting the public, visiting the shopkeepers very concerned by the subject, handing out their booklets to passers-by, distributing them on their booths, in letter-boxes and always being ready to deliver lectures to any group on simple request.

Their basic purpose is to educate the youth, the parents and the public on the real and untold harming not to say destructive results of drugs use. And this includes to oppose the efforts developed towards the normalization of their use by some big organizations (as for cannabis and alcohol) with the support of some politicians and groups with vested interests. Nevertheless, the following graphs show without any doubt that Prevention Works!

In February alone, the different French teams distributed some 22,664 booklets and visited no less than 692 shopkeepers who agreed to participate to their prevention campaign and inform their clients. Many teachers, witnesses of the drug impact on their students, were very thankful to find available materials (booklets, DVDs, Educator Guide) they will be able to use with their students.







This way, the French teams were visible in cities, towns, villages and harbours such as: Angers, Arcachon, Asnières, Auray, Bagneux, Baud, Bouffémont, Cahors, Châtenay-Malabry, Colombes, Dinan, Epinay-s/Seine, Erquy, Gennevillers, Guingamp, Issy-les-Moulineaux, Lescar, Lyon, Marseille, Matignon, Nice, Paris, Pau, Pleneuf-Val-André, Plerin, Ploërmel, Port-du-Legue, Rennes, Roanne, Rognonas, St Brieuc, St-Denis-de-Pile, Tarascon and Toulouse!

Foundation for a Drug-Free Europe was formed in March 2004 with the firm purpose of preventing and stopping debilitating drug use through educating non-users concerning the harmful effects that drugs can inflict upon the body, mind and personality, and by finding and directing existing users to programmes that can help them achieve comfortable abstinence for life.
