One of the most active Narconon drug prevention teams in the world is the one in Hualien, Taiwan. From the Narconon rehab center on the east coast of the country, teams of staff and volunteers fan out every week to distribute educational materials to their neighbors. This time, the team traveled to the northern tip of the island to reach people they perhaps had not met before.

The destination was Keelung City, a port city not far from Taipei. This city is renowned for having one of the most spectacular night markets in the country. At night, the streets of this district close down and the pavement is flooded with people eager for food, clothes or entertainments. But during the day, it’s possible to offer people educational materials on the dangers of drug use and engage them in conversation.

Narconon staff and volunteers from Taipei and Taichung spread out through the Keelung market, giving out brochures and answering questions. In this image, you can see the rows of bright lanterns overhead. At night, these lanterns, neon signs and fluorescent lights almost turn night into day.Taiwan drug prevention on the streets

But this day, it was all about helping the Taiwanese avoid injury and overdose death from drug abuse. In these images, you can see these tireless educators helping save lives.
