The European Times News aims to cover news that matter to increase the awareness of citizens all around geographical Europe.

Brussels will be holding the PREMIERE of one of the documentaries, focused on the job done by drug prevention expert Julie Delvaux. It will be at 6 PM Wednesday June 26th, at Boulevard de Waterloo, 103, 1000 Brussels, and will start with a debate.

On Wednesday, June 26, Scientology Network will observe the UN’s annual commemoration by airing the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking Marathon. The full day of programming puts the focus on the proven power of the Drug-Free World educational campaign to prevent people of all ages from ever trying drugs.

In the US, more than 70 percent of people who tried an illicit drug before the age of 13 have developed an addiction to alcohol or drugs. Worldwide, a recent estimate put the number of illegal drug users at around 296 million.

The European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) has released its annual report summarizing the European drug situation up to the end of 2022, utilizing data from EU Member States, Türkiye, and Norway. This comprehensive overview is based on datasets primarily from 2021, acknowledging challenges in monitoring drug use due to stigma and hidden behaviors. The report uses multiple data sources to analyze trends, stressing caution in data interpretation and country comparisons due to persistent methodological difficulties. Detailed methodological information and limitations are provided in the online Statistical Bulletin, which also includes insights into European-level data estimates.

To contribute to the drug prevention movement called for by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, Brussels will be holding the PREMIERE of one of the documentaries, focused on the job done by drug prevention expert Julie Delvaux. It will be at 6 PM Wednesday June 26th, at Boulevard de Waterloo, 103, 1000 Brussels, and will start with a debate.

The approach to address this multifaceted challenge is reflected in this year’s theme, “The evidence is clear: invest in prevention.”

The special marathon event presents volunteers from across the globe featured on the Scientology Network original series Voices for Humanity. These heroes are educating everyone—from kids in schools to police departments and government officials—with Truth About Drugs materials and are making a meaningful impact on communities and entire nations.

One volunteer, Julie Delvaux, who spreads the message of the Truth About Drugs throughout Belgium and is featured on Voices for Humanity, states:

“Today there is a lot of incorrect information circulating about drugs. We give factual information to the youth. We want to inform them before the dealers do—with the Truth About Drugs campaign. I know that we are really paving the way for a drug-free society.”

Backed by a massive network of volunteers and nearly 80,000 partnerships in 180 countries across six continents, Drug-Free World’s message has reached over one billion people with an acclaimed package of antidrug educational materials.

The day’s programming (beginning 9 a.m. ET) includes:

  • Voices for Humanity, the only ongoing television series dedicated to those working in the streets, schools and communities to combat drugs and other major social ills;
  • PSAs to raise awareness of the devastating dangers of drugs; and
  • The Truth About Drugs documentary, a powerful and comprehensive look into the true dangers of drugs, from marijuana, opioids and synthetic street drugs to the addictive pharmaceuticals marketed with slick Madison Avenue advertising campaigns.
