Let’s SHATTER THE MYTHS® About Drug and Alcohol Use

Teens are bombarded with conflicting messages that can leave them feeling confused and unsure of who to ask for information about drug use.

NDAFW spotlights BACODA !
The Bay Area Council on Drugs and Alcohol hosted more than 350 students in Texas City, TX on January 23, 2019 for a signature NDAFW® event. Community partners ranging from the University of Texas Medical Branch to the Prevention Resource Center and The Council on Recovery staffed 15 labs offering students a hands-on, interactive experience designed to increase student knowledge on substance misuse prevention and education and improve decision-making skills. The National Organization on Youth Safety (NOYS) provided planning and on-the-ground support for this innovative collaboration, which showcased the potential of community activation for shattering the myths of drug and alcohol use.

NIDA Supports Red Ribbon Week
Each year during the last week of October, hundreds of schools across the U.S. take part in Red Ribbon Week. National Red Ribbon Week is a unified effort, sponsored by the National Family Partnership, to promote student commitment to a drug-free America. It began in 1985 after a grim event in our Nation’s history when Drug Enforcement Administration Agent Enrique Camarena was murdered. He had joined the DEA based on his philosophy “I’m only one person. But I want to make a difference.” Red Ribbon week educates students about how communities can come together and make a difference in the fight against illicit drug distribution and use. The event is often marked with school spirit, can-do attitude and enthusiasm. The DEA is part of the U.S. Department of Justice. For more information on Red Ribbon Week, click www.getsmartaboutdrugs.com.
- The annual Red Ribbon Week Campus Video PSA Contest is now open and accepting entries!
