Drug Addiction Blog

Additional Resources

This blog discusses news and current topics about drug addiction. It's goal to help you understand the problems and issues related to drug addiction and review new promising treatments for recovery.

Each of us is different

Nobody sets out to become addicted to drugs or expects to deal with drug addiction. Some people may take an illegal drug for the first time, just to have a thrill or be a part of the crowd.

Some people need prescription medication, but over time they begin to take too much, too often. Whatever the case, people certainly do not expect the misery that comes with addiction. But there is help for drug addiction and drug rehabilitation can work.

Addiction Has Many Faces...

Addiction has many faces, none of them pretty. This site is devoted to trying to help find ways for you to recover from addiction.

We designed this site to give useful information that will help people learn to make better decisions. The key to dealing with drug abuse, alcoholism and drug addiction is having the right information. You need information to recognize and understand drug addiction or alcoholism in yourself, your family, your friends and your community. This blog has complete and up to date facts about drug and alcohol abuse to help people to stop their dependence.

We designed this blog to give useful information that will help people learn to make better decisions.

Who are we? is a website built to answer the questions and concerns of those harmed by drug and alcohol addiction and abuse. It’s a collaborative effort between many people and resources so that you receive the most update information available. Our goal is to be independent and not promote one treatment center over another but give you the tools to make a well-informed decision.

We do recommend that everyone suffering from this destructive disease join a 12-Step group either through your local church, AA, or NA. If you are a family member or loved one of an addict we recommend you begin the 12-step process with Al-Anon as soon as you can.
