National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week® links students with scientists and other experts to counteract the myths about drugs and alcohol that teens get from the internet, social media, TV, movies, music, or from friends. It was launched in 2010 by scientists at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to stimulate educational events in communities so teens can learn what science has taught us about drug use and addiction. 

The Carroll County Health Department Substance Abuse Prevention Office is participating in National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week 2020 by posting on our Facebook page ( and on the CCHD Twitter page ( and by sending out emails Monday through Friday with information about how drug and alcohol abuse impact the brain and body, particularly for young people.

For Monday, 3/30/20, we're focused on educational opportunities for students to test their knowledge and learn about drug use and addiction.  NIDA has developed a range of free virtual education resources for teens - perfect for young people who are currently out of school due to circumstances surrounding the outbreak of COVID-19.  Check out the list below, and feel free to share this information in your community to help SHATTER THE MYTHS.
