National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week will be held from Monday, March 30 until Sunday April 5. The National Institute on Drug Abuse for Teens (NIDA) utilizes this week to link students to scientists and other experts who can counteract the myths and misunderstandings about drugs and alcohol that teens might get from the internet, television and movies. Schools and community partners will be hosting National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week events throughout the week. NIDA will also sponsor a National Drugs and Alcohol Chat day, which gives students the opportunity to ask NIDA scientists about drug and alcohol use and effects, and substance and alcohol use disorders. More information about National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week and events hosted in your community can be found at NIDA’s website. If you or a loved one is struggling with substance use disorder, please contact the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Program’s helpline at 1-800-662-HELP for treatment options.
