Drug & Alcohol Facts Week

NIDA’s National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week: March 21-27, 2022 

Facts week will move forward as scheduled in March 2022, but NIDA’s National Drugs & Alcohol Chat Day will be postponed this year due to the pandemic. Be sure to read the questions linked below submitted by Howard County teens and others at previous chats.

For many years, HC DrugFree partnered with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) on their National Drug and Alcohol Chat Day. We provided an online access code for Howard County teens to submit their questions about drugs and alcohol as NIDA expert scientists provided the facts to Shatter the Myths! Each Howard County student created a user name and submitted questions to NIDA’s panel of scientific experts using our code. In real-time, experts replied.
