National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week -January 23-29, 2017

National Drug & Alcohol Facts WeekSM (NDAFW) is a national health observance for teens to promote local events that use NIDA science to SHATTER THE MYTHSTM,SM about drugs.

NDAFW links students with scientists and other experts to counteract the myths about drugs and alcohol that teens get from the internet, social media, TV, movies, music, or from friends.

It was launched in 2010 by scientists at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to stimulate educational events in communities so teens can learn what science has taught us about drug use and addiction.

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism became a partner starting in 2016, and alcohol has been added as a topic area for the week. NIDA and NIAAA are part of the National Institutes of Health.
