National Drug Facts Week (NDFW) is a national health observance for teens to promote local events that use NIDA science to shatter the myths about drugs. This online guide gives you everything you need to plan, promote, and host your NDFW event.

NIDA’s website contains plenty of resources for you and your group to plan an activity, promote #NDFW, attend online informational chats, and take the drug facts quiz.

NIDA for Teens is a project of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and National Institutes of Health (NIH). Created for middle and high school students and their teachers, this resource provides accurate and timely information for use in and out of the classroom.
