National Inhalants & Poisons Awareness Week is March 19-26, 2006

The National Inhalant Prevention Coalition (NIPC) has developed National Inhalants & Poisons Awareness Week (NIPAW), an annual media-based, community-level program that takes place the third week in March. NIPAW is designed to increase understanding about the use and risks of inhalant involvement. The program involves youth, schools, media, police departments, health organization, civics groups and more, and has proven to be an effective means of mobilizing communities to reduce inhalant use.

To learn more about the NIPC and NIPAW, please visit their website at: http://www.inhalants.org

Colorado residents can order free materials concerned with inhalants abuse as well as resources to support your National Inhalants & Poisons Awareness Week activities by visiting our online RADAR Clearinghouse store.
