Great resource for all things addiction!

National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependency

A couple months ago I was at an annual conference I go to called Research Society on Alcoholism (RSA). I saw there was a talk about dissemination and how to get the research that was so heavily talked about at the conference out into the public. I was drawn immediately. Long story short, there were several speakers there, and one of them was Robert Lindsey, who is the CEO/President of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependency. I was so enthralled by his talk that I struck up a conversation with him about things that can be done to boost knowledge and reduce stigma on addiction. I even spoke up during his talk noting how important it is to get youth involved and informed through social media. He noted that while they did have several thousand followers on twitter, it really is not enough.

Regardless though, when Robert Lindsey spoke, he showed a link of their site for which the link is at the top of the page. I looked around and it’s such a great site with resources for those with addiction, those supporting those with addiction, youth, adults, etc. If you want to simply learn about alcohol and drugs and their individual effects, resources are on the site. Take a look around and see for yourself.

I hope that this is of use to you and/or someone you know.
