National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week® (NDAFW), an annual health observance week, connects teens with resources to SHATTER THE MYTHS® about drugs and alcohol. Put on by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), the 10th annual National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week® (NDAFW), will take place March 30 through April 5, 2020.
NDAFW is a week of educational events that annually brings together teens and scientific experts to SHATTER THE MYTHS® about substance use and addiction. NIDA and NIAAA are both part of the National Institutes of Health.
In lieu of in-person events and activities, NIDA encourages virtual participation. There are countless activities that teens, parents, caregivers, and teachers can do that don’t involve leaving the house. To see all the activities, visit https://teens.drugabuse.gov/national-drug-alcohol-facts-week.
