To honor  National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week (NDAFW ) that recently past, Healthy Lamoille Valley wants to share some resources with you to learn what scientific data tells us about drugs, tobacco and alcohol.

NDAFW was first established to help teenagers learn the facts and dispel the myths.

What are you unsure about? What do you want to learn more about?

Test your knowledge by taking the interactive National Drug & Alcohol IQ Challenge quiz!

Here are some resources to help shatter the myths and give more information!


On this note, coming up in our community are the following two events to raise the knowledge of Vaping, Juulig, E-cigarettes and other flavored tobacco products.
