The DEA supports the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) during their annual National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week (NDAFW®). Held since 2010, NDAFW brings teens and scientific experts together to discuss the scientific facts about drugs, as well as their potential health effects on teen bodies and brains.
The week-long observance will be held March 21-27, 2022.
- Join NIDA in Crafting #MyWhyNDAFW Short Videos
In this activity, teens are encouraged to use their authentic voices to share their why or motivation for adopting healthy behaviors for mind and body.
- Share your #MyWhyNDAFW with this placard.
Print, fill it out, and if you would like, share your motivation for joining the conversation on social media using #NDAFW or #MyWhyNDAFW.
- Take the National Drug & Alcohol IQ Challenge. Test teens’ knowledge about drugs and alcohol with this short, interactive quiz. Take the Kahoot! quiz with a class or encourage them to play individually.
- Play this new kahoot game to help students understand how acute stress affects their bodies, how it differs from the more dangerous constant (or chronic) stress, and learn strategies to support their mental and emotional health.
