SIX TOPICS TO BE DISCUSSED:

  1. The first speaker, Anthony Tate, will be telling his personal story about the death of his college age son due to a drug overdose. His son was enjoying his first year of school on a major college campus. He was happy with his life when he began experimenting with the drugs that killed him and devasted the family he left behind.

  2. The second speaker, Bethany Mabrey, will tell how her drug addiction led her to running away from home. She eventually realized she was headed down the wrong path, so she has made some important changes and is in the process of overcoming her addiction. She's only a teenager, but she speaks from experience and will inspire you with her message.

  3. The Truth About Marijuana will be the first of three sessions to be presented by Tommie Sanders. This drug has long been considered a gateway drug to more dangerous drugs. During this session, Ms. Sanders will share a video from people who developed problems because of their marijuana use.

  4. The Truth About Synthetic Drugs will be the topic of the third session. Many believe synthetic drugs are safer because they are created in labs, but the truth is these drugs can be more dangerous for a variety of reasons which Mr. Sanders will discuss. You will also hear from people who have abused these drugs via a special video.

  5. The Truth About Opiods or Prescription Drugs will be an important session. People often think these drugs are safe because they have been prescribed by a doctor. But, when these drugs are improperly taken the results can be deadly. Ms. Sanders will also share video from people who have been caught up in the abuse of prescription drugs.

  6. The Truth About Suicide will be the final session. Michelle Bauer, who is involved with the Suicide Prevention Hotline, will explain how suicide is often linked to drug abuse.

FREE VIDEOS: During her presentations, Tommie Sanders will be sharing three videos that tell the "truth about drugs." In the videos, you will be hearing from people who have learned some valuable lessons.
