Young people don’t know as much as they think they do about alcohol and drugs. No matter how much information students learn in their classes, they also learn from their peers—and what they hear from their friends about drugs is often little more than rumor or myth. What teens don’t know can hurt them. When young people mistakenly believe a myth about alcohol or other drugs, they put themselves at risk for a host of consequences—from legal trouble to addiction to overdoses. It is imperative that teens learn to separate the facts about drug and alcohol abuse from the harmful but persistent myths.
National Drug Facts Week℠ (NDFW) is an annual health observance week for teens to shatter the myths about drugs and drug abuse.
Human Relations Media programs aid in revealing the truth behind today’s most persistent myths. Once armed with the scientific facts that debunk drug fiction, viewers will be better equipped to avoid the dangers posed by alcohol and other drugs.
