Online PR News – 31-May-2018 – Nashville, TN – Drug-Free Tennessee (DFT) is committed to ending the drug problem in the state. That is why volunteers were at the 2018 Statewide Partners in Prevention Conference, meeting others who are working toward similar goals in helping people, and giving out information on the Truth About Drugs for organizations to use.

"We can come together with other people and make a bigger impact," says Regional Director of Drug-Free Tennessee, Rev. Brian Fesler.

In 2018, DFT volunteers are determined to reach more people than ever. Volunteers recently participated in a Recovery Congregations event put on by the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services. And for the last two days, they were at the 2018 Partners in Prevention Conference at Lipscomb University.

They distributed the Truth About Drugs booklets and talked with people about how to get this information out to students and young people.

"We need to go to all people, to get everyone this information on the truth about drugs," says Fesler.

Drug-Free Tennessee is the local chapter of the Foundation for a Drug-Free World, an international nonprofit organization based in Los Angeles, California, with a focus on the elimination of drug and alcohol abuse and its resulting criminality. It distributes the Truth About Drugs booklet, which covers all basic side effects of drugs, common street names, and how to recognize when you are being persuaded by a dealer.
