Scientology Churches worldwide participate in United Nations International Day against Drug Abuse and Trafficking.

Scientology Churches worldwide participate in United Nations International Day against Drug Abuse and Trafficking.
Scientology Churches worldwide participate in United Nations International Day against Drug Abuse and Trafficking.
The Church of Scientology International is directing its Churches and Missions in 165 countries to join forces with the United Nations on June 26, to raise awareness of drug abuse. The International Day against Drug Abuse and Trafficking is based on UN General Assembly resolution 42/112 passed in 1987 to strengthen action and cooperation in eliminating drug abuse.

Scientology officials are asking members, neighbors, youth groups, officials and community organizations to first educate themselves about drugs and then pass on the information. Through its community anti-drug outreach program, beginning in 1995 the Church developed pocketsize youth-friendly educational booklets on commonly abused drugs. Published by Foundation for a Drug-Free World since 2006 with the support and participation of Church volunteers and community alliances, millions of the booklets have been distributed in 20 languages.

"Ask any drug addict and he will tell you he never planned to become addicted and if he had understood the consequences of drugs, he never would have tried drugs in the first place," said Rev. Bob Adams of the Church of Scientology International.

Community action against drug abuse is also positive gain for civic leaders struggling with dwindling budgets for drug prevention programs. Once common drug prevention services from the DEA, FBI and even law enforcement programs such as D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) are being shaved and in many areas cut entirely.

Staggering figures of disease and death from drug use have been around for years, but the specific harm to individuals, families and society in terms of crime, health costs and productivity losses are harder to find. According to the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, teens and young adults are particularly at risk, with drug use more than twice as high as among the general population. The UNODC says this is due to peer pressure to experiment and that people taking drugs tend to be either misinformed or insufficiently aware of the health risks involved.

"Our community drug-education program has been in very heavy demand since its inception," said Rev. Adams. "Widespread drug education is the most effective weapon in the war on drugs and doing it is saving lives."

Drugs robbed her of her creativity. Scientology gave it back to her.

The exuberant canvases of abstract expressionist Pamela Holl Hunt are a key to her personality.

Born in Newcastle-on-Tyne, England, in 1945, Pam received classical training in the 1960s and 70s in Paris, London and Brussels. But, swept up in the drug culture of the era, she nearly lost the very thing she thought drugs would provide.

“Drugs completely destroyed my creativity,” she says. “It is very ironic, because in the beginning they seemed to give me a surge. But in the end I lost the attitude of ‘What can I create?’ I kept taking more because I hoped that surge would come back. It never did. They took the love of life and painting out of me. It was just a trap.”

Pam met future husband Philip when she was studying painting in Brussels. In 1975, to distance themselves from the drug scene, they moved to Canada.

“We drove cross-country from Ontario to British Columbia. In Vancouver we saw a sign offering a personality test at the Scientology Mission,” she says. “I remember it was raining, and we were drenched. We walked up to the door and I saw something so welcoming in the eyes of the man who opened it, I instantly felt like I had come home. I was always very spiritual. I had been looking for something without really knowing what I was looking for. I was so glad I was able to recognize it when I found it.”

With Scientology, she not only strengthened her decision to stay away from drugs, she also rehabilitated her interest in the world around her.

“I got back all the reasons for living that I lost along the way,” she says.

Pam and Philip married in 1976 and continued their studies in Scientology. They raised two sons, now 33 and 34, and have three grandchildren—two girls and a boy.

“We never shoved our beliefs down our boys’ throats, but we lived by the principles of Scientology,” says Pam. “When one of my sons was six he came home from a friend’s house and asked me why we were so different from his friend’s family. I asked him ‘In what way?’ He said at his friend’s they were always arguing. I told him we used what we learned in Scientology—that’s why it’s calm and peaceful in our home.”

Hunt talks, paints and lives her life with a youthful energy and enthusiasm. She loves her family, her friends, animals (especially her two cats), meeting new people, and being an artist.

“Artists create out of love,” says Hunt, “and I’m so glad I got my love of life and creativity back.”

Nearly dying of alcohol and drug abuse when he was 21, Thai boxing champion Pete Dwan today helps kids lead drug-free lives. His profile is one of 200 “Meet a Scientologist” videos available on the Scientology website at

Twenty-five years ago Pete Dwan nearly died of alcohol and drug abuse. Now he is dedicated to helping kids decide to live drug-free.

In his video on, filmed in his boxing studio, the tattooed Manchester native tells how Scientology changed his life.

“Since I started doing Scientology I’ve got lots of interests I didn’t have before,” he says. “I’ve actually started up my own club, I’ve started up my own business, bought my own house—life got better.”

Part of this change is a program he runs called “The Kombat Kids.” Dwan, who won the British Thai Boxing title 13 years ago and has represented England in international competitions, teaches kick boxing to kids of the ages of seven to twelve in inner city youth centers and housing associations to help them gain self-confidence and a sense of discipline.

To provide them with a guideline for making positive choices in their lives, Dwan uses The Way to Happiness by L. Ron Hubbard, a modern, non-religious, commonsense moral code. He has also delivered drug awareness workshops to more than 30,000 young people in schools and colleges.

“I know what it means to have a problem with drugs,” says Dwan. “I was only 21 when my liver stopped working and I almost died. I tell them my story. They can see I know what I’m talking about.”

Dwan says that since he became a Scientologist eight years ago, the training and spiritual counseling has made an enormous difference in his life.

Dwan, 46, credits Scientology for the energetic enthusiasm he feels about the future.

“It’s fun, man,” he says. “You know, 99 percent of the time I’m smiling. And it’s only because of Scientology.”

Why Drugs Affect You Badly And What to Do About It | Daily News Online

Why Drugs Affect You Badly And What to Do About It

While there are several classes of drugs, the general workability of drugs is that they attack the host organism in which they are implanted.

Drugs are chemicals that attack to act as Sun and destroy life. The classic example is the antibiotic class of drug. They specialize in a targeted killing viruses. Mostly drugs are given as Sun to stop some form of life from functioning. That is the end result of a drug. It may be fungus spores on the skin, or even a cancer. Taken enough it ends life. An antibiotic ends the life of the invading virus, and thus the host organism – our body – having gotten rid gets better of the attacking invader. Other drugs work in a similar fashion, destroying unwanted life forms.

Mind altering drugs work in this wise too. They attack certain parts of the body, stamping out life in their own selected areas. In some cases it is in the nervous system and others it is the brain. Taken to excess they will kill the host organism, the body. In same cases the drug may leave the brain partially retarded, such as petrol sniffing after. regenerate In this case too much of the body tissue has been killed off for the body to.

The tune-in and drop-out days of drug master Timothy Leary, psychiatrist of the United States, paved the way for many to do just that kids. They dropped out with LSD. Leary himself ended up getting a lobotomy, where part of his own brain was cut out.

Today the drug culture continues, and where once it was fashionable to use LSD, now it is the mood swinging chemicalized drugs given to kids for so called learning disorders doled out by the millions, sponsored by governments, that is slowly killing our children and our civilization.

It has been found that when people use drugs, a residual amount of the drug that stays in the body after use. While the body can and does discharge large quantities of toxins that enter it, a residual fat amount does stay inside the tissues. There it accumulates over time, slowly building up the body Gradually become more and more toxic, and life is less able to function as it once could.

Preservatives are thus an anti-life chemical. Its purpose is to stop life growing in prepared food. While the average American is said to consume 50 pounds of preservative a year, a high percentage will be discharged by the body. However, some of the preservative remains within the fatty tissue of the body that consumed the food it was stored in. Then the preservative does to the body what it was doing to the previous food stuff. It prevents life from growing.

So what does all this do? The life-force within you enable you to be and feel energetic, think clearly, work out solutions to life's problems. With all these toxins accumulating within the body, a person gets more lethargic and energy drained. His IQ drops and he is more than cause the affect of life over it. Tiredness and laziness are typical. Premature aging is not unusual.

There is a solution to this however. One gets the toxins out from the body. Get the body to discharge the drugs, toxins and preservatives – and industrial toxins – from the fatty tissues of the body.

It was found by L. Ron Hubbard, who experimented with just this, and researched in the 1970's, that the body will expel toxins, and drugs when it is given vitamin B3 while sweating. The toxins and drugs were found to came out through the pores of the skin with the sweat. This in turn lead to the Purification Rundown, a program delivered by the Church of Scientology to its members, and which then became the critical part of the Narconon drug (rehab) program.

The program quickly found out that B3 and other vitamins needed to be consumed on a daily basis while a person was inside a sauna, sweating. A person would go into a sauna for some period, withdraw to cool down, then go in again and so on, sweating all the while. The body is replenished with salt, potassium and lots of water. After doing this for several weeks a human completes the program.

About 250 000 people have completed the Purification Rundown over three decades. The results are people more awake, more aware and more able to solve problems in life. An accurate description of the program can be obtained from the book, Clear Body Clear Mind, a collection of writings on the subject by L. Ron Hubbard.

Nick Broadhurst is the Executive Director of the Church of Scientology of Canberra. He has been in Scientology for 20 years and has over 20.000 pages read, and listened to over 300 taped lectures on the subject. The Purification Rundown , Clear Body Clear Mind by L. Ron Hubbard
