The Geauga County Board of Mental Health and Recovery Services joins the National Institutes of Health and Drug Abuse in promoting National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week, which was launched in 2010 to counteract the myths about drugs and alcohol that teens get from the internet, social media, TV, movies, music or friends.
Teens (and adults!) can test their knowledge about drugs, alcohol and drug abuse by taking the interactive and downloadable online National Drug & Alcohol IQ Challenge quiz.
Drug & Alcohol Chat Day is January 22, 2018. During this annual live online chat held between students and NIDA scientists, students from around the country ask the questions they most want answers to about drugs, alcohol, and drug use, including drug and alcohol effects, how to help friends or family that are abusing drugs, and what causes addiction.
