What is National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week?

National Drug & Alcohol Facts WeekSM was launched in 2010 by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), part of the National Institutes of Health. To counteract the myths they get from the internet, TV, movies, music, or from friends, NIDA scientists want to stimulate events in communities so  teens  can learn what science has taught us about drug abuse and addiction.
