National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week begins January 25

National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week (NDAFW) will take place Jan. 23-29, 2017.  NDAFW is an annual, week-long observance that brings together teens and scientific experts to shatter the myths about substance use and addiction. 
 
Also during NDAFW, NIDA and NIAAA scientists will hold their annual web chat with hundreds of teens from around the country. National Drugs & Alcohol Chat Day will be held Jan. 26, 2017 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST.
 
Further details on the popular annual chat, including registration information and transcripts from previous years, can be found at http://teens.drugabuse.gov/national-drug-facts-week/chat-with-scientists.
