Monday, March 30th through Sunday, April 5th is National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week. Launched in 2010 by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, this is a time that aims to link students with scientists and other experts to teach what science has taught us about drug use and addiction. This time is also dedicated to counteracting the myths about drugs and alcohol that teens get from the internet, social media, TV, movies, music, or from friends.
