Finding reliable information about drug misuse and addiction can be a challenge.
But the National Institute on Drug Abuse makes it easier with Easy-to-Read Drug Facts. The online resource organizes useful information in many forms, including videos, health topics, and personal stories of people who have struggled with these issues.
Learn about common drugs that people misuse—like e-cigarettes, alcohol, marijuana, and pain killers—and what effects drug misuse can have, for example, impacts on families and kids.
The site also provides advice on treatment and recovery for people struggling or loved ones who want to help. All content is available in English and Spanish.
