National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week: Galveston County Community Coalition

Learn more about National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week.

National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week is a national health observance week. 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.  Galveston County Community Coalition 
has brought National Drug Facts Week activities to schools across Galveston County every year since 2010. 

Top 3 Ways to Get Involved in National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week

1. Host a National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week event. We would love to help plan and promote an event 
in your community. Contact Galveston County Community Coalition's Community Liaison, Jennifer Hart, at

                                                            2. Participate in Drug and Alcohol Chat Day. National Drugs & Alcohol Chat Day is an annual live 
                                                            online chat held between high school students and NIDA scientists during National Drug & Alcohol 
                                                            Facts Week. Students from around the country ask the questions they most want the answers to 
                                                            about drugs and drug abuse, including drug effects, how to help friends or family that are abusing 
                                                            drugs, and what causes addiction. Our expert scientists give them the facts.

                                                            3. Take the National Drug and Alcohol IQ Challenge. During National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week 
                                                            and year round, teens can test their knowledge about drugs, alcohol, and drug abuse by taking 
                                                            the interactive National Drug & Alcohol IQ Challenge quiz. A new challenge is posted annually 
                                                            during NDAFW.
