CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, July 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — With temperatures reaching over 90 degrees in the Tampa Bay area, The Foundation for a Drug-Free World (FDFW) Florida Chapter opened its doors to the 4th of July celebrants in downtown Clearwater and again for events this past weekend. Hundreds came in and toured while cooling down and enjoying a complimentary non-alcoholic beverage. They also learned useful information on the Truth About Drugs program, watched short videos on the dangers of drugs and signed the Drug-Free Pledge.
“We welcome all to our center to learn about the dangers of drugs and to share the free Truth About Drugs materials with others,” said Julieta Santagostino the President of the FDFW Florida Chapter.
Per an addiction services organization, Bradford Health Services, multiple studies show that alcohol and drug use among adolescents significantly increases during the summer months. By the end of August, nearly one million teens will have tasted their first drink of alcohol. On an average summer day, approximately 4,500 youth will smoke cigarettes or marijuana for the first time. 
FDFW provides free drug education materials, including The Truth About Drugs documentary DVD and 14 different informational booklets on the most commonly abused drugs – such as marijuana, alcohol, painkillers and heroin. Anyone can get copies to share with their families and friends.
