See our new name! National Drug & Alcohol Facts WeekSM (NDAFW). We now partner with the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism to include alcohol information for teens in our community events. 

NIDA has new publications and promotional resources available for NDAFW this year. Please check out our newest publications, Marijuana: Facts Parents Need to Know (available in both English and Spanish), and Family Checkup: Positive Parenting Prevents Drug Abuse. Also, our most popular NDAFW publication, Drugs: SHATTER THE MYTHS, is now available in Spanish. All publications are free. NIDA also has five new toolkits for events that are specific to the following themes: alcohol, marijuana, prescription drugstobacco, and new psychoactive substances (synthetics). We also have a general NDAFW toolkit available in Spanish. Once you have decided on your event, a new resource, “How to Promote Your National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week 2016 Event: Tools for Success”, is available to help promote it through traditional and social media outreach.
