Rehab Detox Treatment Encourages National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week

Teens can read true-life addiction stories on


Fort Myers, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/27/2016 is excited to take part in the National Institute of Health's (NIH) National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week observance happening Monday, January 25 to Sunday, January 31. This annual observance is dedicated to teens and partners them with scientists and other experts who want to shatter the myths about drug and alcohol abuse. Over many decades, teens have received misinformation about drugs and alcohol through images and content online, and through music, movies, television, friends and more.

The National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week was launched to stimulate communities to hold educational events that teach teens what science proves about drug and alcohol abuse and addiction. During these school and community gatherings, teens will hear from drug experts and scientists about how drugs and alcohol will affect their brain, body, behavior, athletic performance and more. You may be wondering why this week is so necessary? For starters, NIH studies show about a third of high school seniors report using drugs sometime in the past year. In addition, over 20 percent state smoking marijuana in the past month and five percent report using potentially addictive prescription pain relievers for nonmedical purposes. It is crucial that teens learn early on about the scientific facts of drugs and alcohol so they can make better life decisions and share correct information with their peers.

At, we believe sharing true stories about addiction and giving people hope for the future is vital to helping people live addiction free lives. Our addiction and recovery website connects those in recovery to one another. Visitors will find a safe place to express themselves, bond with one another and freely explore and read true-life testimonies of others who have walked or are walking the same journey. From teens to adults, the true stories shared on this website will move people of all ages and offer encouragement and inspiration that everyone can live a drug and alcohol free life.

We understand that addiction is a difficult road, and especially scary for young men and women. At, these young men and women will discover that although the journey may at times seems frightening, they can be victorious in the end. They will also learn that they aren't going through this experience on their own – that countless other men and women are willing to share their experiences, offer advice and provide honest answers.

During National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week, parents and guardians should encourage teens to look for events and activities happening in their community where they can learn the truth about drug and alcohol abuse and addition. Teens can also visit with their parents and read through countless true-life stories of addiction and what the road to recovery involved.

Let's work together to provide young men and women the information they need to know about drugs and alcohol and what it can do to their body and their life. Visit today to learn more!
