(Newswire.net — January 20, 2016) Tampa, FL — For the last 5 years, National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week (NDAFW) has been celebrated during the last week of January in the United States. Activities and events throughout this week are centered on connecting students with experts to dispel common myths related to drug and alcohol use. 

Groups like The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) partner with schools, local health care providers – like AvantGarde Urgent Care, and other organizations partner to provide the public with scientific facts about drugs and alcohol. People, most often teens, are encouraged to participate in this yearly campaign, to ask questions and learn more about preventing alcohol and drug abuse.

While the main reason for creating this yearly event was to increase awareness of the risks of drug and alcohol abuse among teens, AvantGarde Urgent Care goes one step further, including adults, particularly employers and their employees in these efforts.

“Even with the extensive amount of educational materials available, some employers and employees are still unaware of the impact that that drugs and alcohol can have on job performance and the dangers associated with driving, or operating heavy machinery under the influence,” says Johana Rodriguez, marketing liaison for AvantGarde Urgent Care.

She continues, “The expertly trained staff and physicians at AvantGarde Urgent Care are here to both educate local businesses about these dangers, as well as offer affordable, convenient testing options that help reduce future medical expenses and improve employee productivity.”

AvantGarde Urgent Care offers the following helpful tips: 

Get Educated about Alcohol and Drugs – Knowledge is power. The more you know, the easier it is to make the right decisions regarding drug and alcohol consumption, as well as how to spot signs and symptoms of alcohol and drug use and addiction.

Seek Help – If you or someone you know is experiencing problems with alcohol and/or drugs, do not hesitate to get help. Waiting can worsen the problem.
