When it comes to drugs and drug abuse, youth receive an abundance of misinformation from television, the internet, movies, music and peers. That’s why January 27th through February 2nd is being honored as National Drug Facts Week; a health observance for teens that aims to shatter the myths and share the truth about drugs and what they can do to one’s brain, body and behavior.
TEACHERS: January rolls in like a breath of fresh air. The calendar is reset and the second half of the school year is just beginning. In many regards, it is a chance for students to begin anew and an opportunity to do things “better” moving forward. The New Year is also an ideal occasion for them (and you) to set some fresh goals.
