NIDA Drug and Alcohol Facts Week

Prevention partners are once again invited to participate in National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week, sponsored by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. This week-long health observance is an opportunity for teens to learn the facts about drugs, alcohol, and addiction from scientists and other experts.

Organize and promote an educational event or activity for teens during the week of January 23–29, 2017, and help shatter the myths about drugs and alcohol. It’s easy to get involved!

Register your event and receive support from NIDA staff to plan a successful activity. NIDA staff can help you order free science-based materials to complement your event, brainstorm activity ideas, and partner with other organizations. Get your event nationally recognized by adding it to the official 2017 map of activities for National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week.
