On August 31st, Scientology Network will mark International Overdose Awareness Day with a full day of relevant programming. The marathon is dedicated to raising awareness on the true dangers of drugs to reverse the rising tide of drug overdoses.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently announced that year-over-year drug overdose deaths rose by nearly 30 percent in 2020, the biggest increase in over 20 years. With that, the importance of educating children and adults with lifesaving information is more critical than ever before.

As part of an ongoing global and multifaceted approach to raising awareness on the true dangers of drugs, Scientology Network is airing a special marathon of shows. Featured are individuals and organizations using the Drug-Free World campaign in their fight against drugs. Viewers will see how they bring the realities of drug abuse to the streets, the schools and communities around the world.

The day’s programming (beginning 8 a.m. PT) 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 dangers of drug use; 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.
