There is a great deal of information available in books and on websites about substance use. Because these books and websites are often written by professionals, they can be hard to understand. NIDA (National Institute on Drug Abuse) has developed an informational website that is easy to read and understand. In addition to the easy-to-read language, the website has other useful features including:
1) the ability to have the web page read to you
2) short informational videos to help explain addiction more clearly
3) stories from people who have battled substance abuse
4) a treatment locator
