National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week (NDAFW)

National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week (NDAFW) is a national health observance for teens to promote local events that use NIDA science to SHATTER THE MYTHS about drugs.

Governor Doug Ducey's Youth Commission will host a social media campaign in recognition and support of National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week beginning Monday, January 25th and concluding Friday, January 29th.

Join the Governor's Youth Commission by liking, sharing and retweeting social media posts, youth pledges and more on the following social media channels:

The week-long observance was launched in 2010 to counteract the myths about drugs and alcohol that teens often hear from the Internet, TV, movies, music, or friends. Since its inception, the number of community-based events has grown dramatically, with more than 1,500 held last January throughout all 50 states and several international sites. Events link teens with scientists and other experts, creating a safe place for teens to ask questions about drug and alcohol use, without judgment or lectures.

National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week is sponsored by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and supported by many federal agencies, including the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP); the Office of Safe and Healthy Students in the U.S. Department of Education; the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA); and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
