National Drug Facts Week begins January 28, 2013

National Drug Facts Week (NDFW) is a health observance week for teens that aims to shatter the myths about drugs and drug abuse. Through community-based events and activities on the Web, on TV, and through contests, the National Institute on Drug Abuse is working to encourage teens to get factual answers from scientific experts about drugs and drug abuse.

"This week is designed to counteract the myths teens have about drug abuse, often reinforced by their peers, the Internet, and the entertainment industry," said NIDA Director Dr. Nora D. Volkow. "When given the facts from people they trust, teens are in a better position to make good decisions about drug use."
