Scientology Network will present the International Overdose Awareness Day marathon on August 31 to raise global awareness on the effectiveness of drug education to prevent overdose deaths.
According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, drug deaths nationwide hit a new record in 2022 with more than 109,000 overdose deaths. Some experts predict the opioid crisis will soon become the single most serious public health crisis facing the US.
As part of an ongoing global effort to combat the rising rates of drug overdoses through education, Scientology Network’s International Overdose Awareness Day marathon will feature programming showcasing individuals and organizations using the Drug-Free World campaign to bring to light the true dangers of drugs to people of all ages.
Julieta Santagostino, president of Foundation for a Drug-Free World Florida and featured on Voices for Humanity, states, “Drugs affect everybody. It doesn’t matter what class, what religion, where you live, where you come from, it affects all of us. My purpose is to reverse that, to empower others with real facts, real information about drugs, so they can make an educated decision.”
Viewers of the marathon will see the myriad societal problems stemming from drug abuse and how Drug-Free World’s educational campaign is positively impacting communities around the world.
The day’s programming (beginning 8 a.m. ET) includes:
