Truth About Drugs PSAs Reach Millions in Times Square, New York


The Foundation for a Drug-Free World aired its drug prevention public service announcements on Times Square on Jan 25, 2018, sending more than 1.9 million people to their website to learn more about the award-winning Truth About Drugs drug prevention campaign. The PSAs appeared four times an hour, 672 times in all, on giant electronic billboards at the corner of 7th Avenue and 46th street

The local chapter (Foundation for a Drug-Free World The Americas Chapter) has brought the Truth About Drugs program to at-risk youth across a citywide network of community centers and schools, with more than 100 partnerships, helping to generate the first drug usage drop among teens in more than a decade and earning them more than 30 awards and recognitions.
