Friends of Narconon President's Briefing--Issue 4   PDF  Print  Email 

As we all know, drugs are an international epidemic. While there are many reasons for this, one thing we discovered while researching the information portrayed in our new DVD release feature Why Parents Are The Last to Know was that parents are a big part of the problem.

Here is a comment from an 18 year old senior about this issue:

"The big problem with parents," says an 18-year-old senior at a High School, "is I think a lot of them have tried it, but they're too scared to talk about it with their kids."

A recently released report from the Partnership for Drug-Free America reveals that this situation is becoming increasingly common.

Based on data from its 17th annual tracking study of parents' attitudes towards drugs and teen drug use, the organization announced earlier this year that the current generation of parents is the most drug-experienced group on record (58 percent have tried marijuana at least once) and that the percentage of parents who report never talking with their child about drugs has doubled in the past six years, from 6 percent in 1998 to 12 percent in 2004.

As you can see the problem with parents cannot be taken lightly.

While the above research is interesting, at Friends of Narconon we uncovered something even more deep-rooted that has apparently been overlooked by current research, or not stated the way we have found it to be.

Our new feature reveals the underlying reasons why parents are the last ones to find out their kids have a drug problem. This new-found information opens the door for us to start addressing the bigger issue of kids and drugs which begins early on in a child's life.

You can help us continue this quest to help families deal with these problems before they start.

Get your copy of our DVD -- Marijuana The Myth or The Truth About Drugs: What is it? and show them to friends and family.

Results are already pouring in on these features.

One parent told me that the information in this DVD was so true and, knowing that, they felt calmer about the subject.

The more families that have this information, the better they will be.

Remember at Friends of Narconon we are Changing Minds - Saving Lives. How about pitching in a little too?
