Online PR News – 17-August-2012 – Atlantic, GA – Mary Rieser (http://www.facebook.com/maryriesernnga), Executive Director Narconon of Georgia, sent ambassadors, Ji Johnson and Gordy Weinand to join their community in the 29th Annual National Night Out, Tuesday, August 7, 2012. Hundreds of brochures and DVDs to inform the public about drug awareness, particularly how to detect and prevent drug abuse, were handed out at the event which was coordinated by the local police department. Groups represented at the event included local cheerleaders, junior and senior police forces, paramedics, local businesses and neighbors.
“We are pleased at all the requests pouring in for us to speak on the drug problems facing our city and state and the solutions we offer. To help fill the demand for our effective drug education talks and drug rehab materials I have named two staff, Ji Johnson and Gordy Weinand, as my ambassadors. Together, we are committed to provide drug prevention education and drug rehab to help save lives,” says Rieser.
National Night Out is an annual crime and drug prevention event created for the purpose of helping local police and neighborhoods to: (1) Raise crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) Generate support for and participation in local anti-crime efforts; (3) Strengthen the spirit of police and community partnerships and (4) Send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are fighting back. The national event involved an estimated 11,000 communities from all over the United States and included communities in Canada and military bases.
The Narconon ambassadors participated by setting up their booth designed to inform the public about drug awareness, particularly how to detect and prevent drug abuse. In spite of the rain, hundreds of citizens visited the Narconon booth taking brochures and DVDs. Almost everyone had been touched by drug addiction, either through family or acquaintances, and wanted to take educational materials with them for future use.
Narconon was commended for its efforts in fighting drug abuse and their recent efforts of reducing synthetics were especially acknowledged. It was well understood by all attendees that drug abuse is behind most of the crime that neighborhoods experience.
