National Drug & Alcohol Facts WeekSM (NDAFW). This is a national observance for teens to usescience to SHATTER THE MYTHS about drugs. It is a great opportunity to link students with scientists and other experts to counteract the myths about drugs and alcohol that teens get from the internet, TV, movies, music, or from friends. Launched in 2010 by scientists at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to stimulate educational events at the community level so teens could discover the science behind drug abuse and addiction. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism became a partner starting in 2016.
During National Drug & Alcohol Facts WeekSM and year round, teens can test their knowledge about drugs, alcohol, and drug abuse by taking the interactive National Drug & Alcohol IQ Challenge quiz. A new challenge is posted annually during NDAFW.
