We are hosts 5 events in Roane County. We have events going on in 4 middle schools and 1 high school in the county. We are proud to be able to shatter the myths and raise awareness about drugs & alcohol in our community.
National Drug Facts Week℠ (NDFW) is an annual health observance week for teens to shatter the myths about drugs and drug abuse. NDFW centers on community events for teens, NIDA’s Drug Facts Chat Day, and partnerships.
Events: Locally planned and hosted school and community events focus on providing teens the scientific facts about drugs.
Drug Facts Chat Day: During this annual live online chat held between high school students and NIDA scientists, students from around the country ask the questions they most want answers to about drugs and drug abuse, including drug effects, how to help friends or family that are abusing drugs, and what causes addiction. Our expert scientists give them the facts.
Partnerships: NIDA works with leading organizations, media outlets, and other Government agencies to spread the word about NDFW and shatter the myths about drugs and drug abuse.
