National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week

National Drug & Alcohol Facts WeekSM (NDAFW) is a national health observance for teens to promote local events that use NIDA science to SHATTER THE MYTHS about drugs. This online guide gives you everything you need to plan, promote, and host your NDAFW event.

Thank you for joining us for this year's Chat Day. We had 61 schools participating and over 7,000 questions submitted. While some of our scientists were snowed in and couldn’t participate, we answered as many as we could. See the transcript to see if your questions were answered. Transcripts coming soon!
