Let’s Shatter the Myths about Drug Abuse

Have you heard the news? The National Institute on Drug Abuse is holding the third annual National Drug Facts Week from January 28 - February 3, 2012. Taking part in National Drug Facts Week means you have the opportunity to help shatter the myths about drug use for teens.

Every day, teens are bombarded with conflicting messages that may leave them feeling confused and unsure of who to ask for information about drug use. With 7.4% of teens reporting abuse of prescription drugs in the past year and 22.6% of 12th graders reporting using marijuana in the past month, it’s crucial to reach teens with the facts.

Wondering how you can take part? There are plenty of ways to get involved in National Drug Facts Week. You can:

  • Host a local event in your community -- don’t forget to register it online
  • Distribute the Drugs: Shatter the Myths booklet to teens
  • Take the National Drug IQ Challenge, which is updated each year
  • Become a social media partner
