Resources for Teachers & Teens: National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week Starts January 22

Shatter the Myths

2018 National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week®: Monday, January 22nd through Sunday, January 28th.

National Drug & 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.

Learn more about the week and how to plan for events, access toolkits, free resources for teachers and students, live chat with scientists on January 22 and much more at
