During the week of Jan 22nd – 28th, The National Institute of Health hosts National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week (NDAFW), which is a national health observance for teens to promote local events that use National Institute on Drug Abuse science to SHATTER THE MYTHS about drugs. National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week® 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.
