Why put another addiction site together?


The Internet offers the potential for making a positive impact on large numbers of people. But there's a lot of junk out there and many sites offer questionable quality control. The key is to find sites that base their information on recognized research. The Internet is indispensable to many researchers, so there are many sites that can be relied on for quick, reliable content. This site will function as a noncommercial resource that can be available to others on the Internet. If you know of any good new links, please send an e-mail with any suggestions.


What makes this site different from the hundreds of other addictions sites?


Most addictions websites provide an avenue for personal views and experiences in recovery. This site does not need to do this --- other websites can point people to as many self-help meetings as they can handle. (In fact, a number of these sites are listed here.) Instead, this site offers links to the latest information arising from well-respected, reliable sources. The focus here is on research, especially the kind that gives an overview of a key area. These resources allow you to review the information efficiently. As a result, you do not have to wade through piles of material hoping to find out about a particular drug or treatment approach. If you do not see a topic of importance, just pass it along by using the Contact button above.
