National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week
National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week, observed January 23 - 29, 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 friends.
National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week 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 National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week. NIDA and NIAAA are part of the National Institutes of Health.
