Scientology Church Fights Drug Abuse

This story out of Cincinnati is just one of hundreds that occurred last week in Scientology churches around the world. Scientologists are passionate about helping people avoid the tragedy of addiction. This story appeared in the Cincinnati Enquirer.

The local Scientology Church, 215 W. Fourth St. downtown, joined the United Nations International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking on Monday by holding a drug education and activities day.

Adam Espayev, 10, a youth "Drug-Free Marshal" who lives downtown, swore in three new drug-free marshals.

Drug-Free Marshals are youngsters who take a 12-point pledge to stay drug-free and educate others about the benefits of leading a drug-free life, said Thalia Ghiglia, Director of Public and Community Affairs of the church.

The kids also visited the Cincinnati Fire Station at Central Avenue and Fifth Street and swore in several firefighters as Drug-Free Marshals.

The date was chosen by the 93rd plenary meeting of the United Nations General Assembly to express its determination to strengthen action and cooperation at the regional, national and international levels toward the goal of an international society free of drug abuse.

"This program is completely in alignment with the objectives of our anti-drug campaign, 'Say no to drugs, say yes to life,' " said Ghiglia.

For more information about the program, call Ghiglia at 513-238-6063
