National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week® March 2021
National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week® is Monday, March 22 - Sunday, March 28, 2021. During the week NIDA links students with scientists and other experts to counteract the myths about drugs and alcohol that teens get from the internet, social media, TV, movies, music, or from friends.
Below is a National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week promotional video introduced by NIDA Director, Dr. Nora Volkow and NIAAA Director, Dr. George Koob.
It was launched in 2010 by scientists at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to stimulate educational events in communities so teens can learn what science has taught us about drug use and addiction. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism became a partner in 2016, and alcohol has been added as a topic area for the week. NIDA and NIAAA are part of the National Institutes of Health.
