Anti-Drug Events and Community Activities
Narconon centers around the world conduct numerous anti-drug events and also participate in many collaborative efforts with like minded organizations.
These events including participation in local community fairs, parades, anti-drug marches, conferences, concerts, Native American pow-wows, marathons and even a circus in Sweden.
In many countries, Narconon staff and volunteers conduct education campaigns where they distribute drug education booklets throughout their area.

In an effort to help steer inner-city teens away from drug abuse and gang violence, Narconon has been working with LA area groups to promote the Positive Art of Hip Hop.
Narconon International joined forces with other groups and businesses, such as Cease Fire (a violence prevention and intervention group), the Hip Hop Hall of Fame (founded by Lonzo Williams who is the Grand Master of West Cost Hip Hop,) and produced an invitation only VIP hip hop event.
A statewide campaign has been conducted by Narconon Hawaii, where drug education parent kits have been distributed to families throughout the islands. The campaign has been led by Hawaiian born actress Kelly Preston, who is very determined to make a change in the Ice epidemic in her home state.
