News from the Health Department:

Did you know? January 22 to 27, 2019 is National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week (NDAFW). NDAFW links teens with scientists and other experts to counteract the myths about drugs and alcohol that they get from the internet, social media, TV, movies, music or from friends.
The Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division leads a community-wide prevention committee called Light & Unite Red (LUR).

Red represents substance abuse awareness, and LUR members work together to shine a spotlight on the dangers of substance use. LUR members plan events throughout the year but focus on NDAFW.

Learn about activities occurring around Southeastern Wisconsin, follow LUR on Facebook, and take the interactive National Drug & Alcohol IQ Challenge quiz.
