Shoutout to Shatter Drug Abuse Myths

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), is sponsoring the CyberShoutout on October 28 to prepare for the second annual National Drug Facts Week that starts on Monday. National Drug Facts Week was created to shatter the myths and spread facts about drug abuse and addiction.

Teens, parents, teachers, scientists, and others are marking the occasion in communities all over the country, from Douglas, Alaska, to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Unique events like scavenger hunts, poster campaigns, Halloween “Fright Nights” with giveaways, carnivals, and substance-free parties encourage teens to have meaningful conversations about drugs and addiction.

Add your voice today and post your own drug abuse Shoutout on your blog, Facebook profile, Twitter account.
