NIDA National Drug Facts Week

by Brianna Luft | Feb 06, 2014

Hello, everyone!

Welcome back to campus. I hope your semester is starting off well!

Last week was The National Institute of Drug Abuse's Drug Facts Week.First, I want you guys to take this Drug IQ Challenge and see how much you know. Here is the link:  http://drugfactsweek.drugabuse.gov/files/DrugIQFlyer_en_2014.pdf

How did you do?! I didn't do as well as I had thought I would! It shows that there is a lot to learn about drug abuse, and that it is a bigger problem, especially in teenagers, than many of us realize.

Here is a place to learn more facts:  http://teens.drugabuse.gov/drug-facts

I hope you guys take a study break and educate yourselves about these drug abuse trends. They will affect all of us as health care professionals.

Lastly, this is my favorite thing that I found! 

Thank you for reading and have a great weekend!
