What is National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week®?

National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week® is a health observance week for teens that aims to SHATTER THE MYTHS® about drug and alcohol use. It is a week dedicated to linking 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). The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism became a partner starting in 2016, and alcohol was added as a topic area for the week. NIDA and NIAAA are part of the National Institutes of Health. For more information, download the NDAFW Info Sheet
