Let’s SHATTER THE MYTHS About Drug and Alcohol Use

The National Institute on Drug Abuse and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism is holding its annual National Drug & Alcohol Facts WeekSM from January 23–29, 2017. Taking part in National Drug & Alcohol Facts WeekSM gives us a chance to help teens 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. With 12.9% of 12th graders reporting abuse of prescription drugs in the past year and 21.3% 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 (data is from the Monitoring the Future Study: Trends in Prevalence of Various Drugs).

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

We are not powerless when it comes to drug and alcohol use among young people. We know that preventing substance use before it begins is the most cost-effective approach to reduce substance use and its consequences. By raising awareness and educating young people and their families, we can help reduce drug use and the number of people affected by substance use disorders.
