Leading the Charge at Super Bowl LVIII Against Drug Abuse

As the Chiefs and the 49ers prepared to vie for the title at Super Bowl LVIII, another contest was taking place in Las Vegas. Volunteers launched an initiative to save lives in the face of spiraling overdose 

Volunteers from Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Scientology Churches and Missions across the Southwest gathered at the Church of Scientology Las Vegas February 10 on the eve of Super Bowl LVIII to take on the drug epidemic affecting the city and the nation.

According to the Southern Nevada Health District, 2023 saw a record 237 deaths in the region from fentanyl overdose. But this is a nationwide crisis. What better way to create maximum impact and save lives than by reaching out with the Truth About Drugs initiative to local residents and those arriving in Las Vegas for the Super Bowl from across the nation?

Volunteers gathered in the auditorium of the Church of Scientology Las Vegas to launch their distribution of hundreds of thousands of Truth About Drugs booklets. They handed them out one-on-one to fans all along the Las Vegas Strip and delivered sets of the booklets to shops and restaurants for their customers and patrons.

Legendary running back Marshall Faulk, National Drug-Free World spokesperson, leads the charge, with volunteers from across the Southwest heading out to the Las Vegas Strip to share the Foundation’s Truth About Drugs initiative with locals and visitors in Las Vegas for Super Bowl LVIII
Former Broncos safety and radio personality Nick Ferguson led the charge as volunteers from across the Southwest headed out from the Church of Scientology to the Las Vegas Strip to share the Foundation for a Drug-Free World’s Truth About Drugs initiative with local residents and visitors arriving in Las Vegas for Super Bowl LVIII.

“Everywhere we went, people wanted booklets to share with friends or family,” said one of the volunteers. 

Well aware of the lives ruined by drug and alcohol abuse, Scientologists are passionate about taking effective action with the Truth About Drugs initiative. 

Noting the increase in substance abuse and the role this has played in the disintegration of the social fabric, Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote, “Research has demonstrated that the single most destructive element present in our current culture is drugs.”

The Church of Scientology and Scientologists support Foundation for a Drug-Free World. The state-of-the-art Scientology Dissemination and Distribution Center produces all the materials for this Church-sponsored humanitarian program, making it possible to provide them free of charge to campaigns like this and to schools, civic groups, governments, law enforcement, and institutions in the private sector. 

The Church of Scientology Las Vegas is an Ideal Scientology Organization, designed to provide the ideal facilities for Scientologists on their ascent to higher states of spiritual freedom and to serve as a home for the entire community and a meeting ground of cooperative effort to uplift people of all denominations. The Church was dedicated by Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige in 2010.
