National Drug Facts Week (NDFW) is a national health observance for teens to promote local events that use science and research from the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) to debunk myths about drugs and to tell the truth about addiction and substance abuse. The dates for this observance are January 26 – February 1, 2015.

Like many other awareness events, the NDFW website features statistics and infographics, teaching guides, and lessons and quizzes by drug to help you get involved. You can also learn more about events in your community as well as Drug facts Chat Day, an annual live online chat held between high school students and NIDA scientists.
