Best Websites for Substance Use Education
Updated: Mar 15
There are several major websites for drug information and statistics, including:
National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) - NIDA provides research-based information on drug use and addiction, including statistics, treatment options, and the latest scientific advances in the field.
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) - SAMHSA offers a wealth of information on substance abuse prevention, treatment, and recovery, including data on drug use trends and statistics.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) - The CDC provides information on drug overdose deaths, opioid prescribing practices, and other drug-related health issues.
Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) - The DEA provides information on drug trafficking, drug-related crime, and drug enforcement efforts.
World Health Organization (WHO) - The WHO offers global data on drug use and addiction, as well as information on evidence-based prevention and treatment interventions.
It's important to note that while these websites provide reliable and evidence-based information, it's always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional or addiction specialist for personalized advice and support.
