Let’s Shatter the Myths About Drug Abuse

The National Institute on Drug Abuse is holding its annual National Drug Facts WeekSM from January 26 to February 1, 2015. Taking part in National Drug Facts WeekSM gives us a chance to help teens shatter the myths about drug use.

Teens are bombarded with conflicting messages that may leave them feeling confused and unsure of who to ask for information about drug use. With 15% of 12th graders reporting abuse of prescription drugs in the past year and 22.7% reporting use of marijuana in the past month, there is no better time than now to help teens understand the serious consequences of drug use.

There are plenty of ways to get involved in National Drug Facts WeekSM, including:
