ndfwtrifoldfinal-1Friends of NCADD are urged to mark their calendars for the fourth annual National Drug Facts Week (NDFW) to be held January 27 to February 2, 2014.

With your help, we can greatly surpass last year's milestone of 537 events, with at least one event held in every state.

What is National Drug Facts Week?

National Drug Facts Week (NDFW) is a health observance week for teens that aims to shatter the myths about drugs and drug abuse. Through community-based events and activities on the Web, on TV, and through contests, ndfw logo

National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is working to encourage teens to get factual answers from scientific experts about drugs and drug abuse.

NIDA scientists will once again personally answer questions about drug use from students, parents, and teachers during Drug Facts Chat Day on January 31, 2014.

At last year's Drug Facts Chat Day, 40 NIDA and other scientists answered almost 2,000 questions about drugs and addiction from 56 participating schools.
