NEW RESOURCES FROM NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF DRUG ABUSE
NIDA has developed step-by-step guides for people with loved
ones who might have an addiction disorder, or for people seeking to help themselves.
They are in simple "Q and A" format, and include easy-to-understand
These guides focus on the steps needed to:
- determine if a person needs treatment
- how to find it; what happens in treatment
- how to find help paying for it
- privacy issues
- and more!
We've added a link from our TREATMENT page. You can also find them here
on the NIDA website
Note that these guides are customized into 4 categories:
1. teens seeking help
2. adults seeking help
3. parents / guardians seeking help for their teen or young adult child
4. people trying to help an adult loved one
Please spread the word about these useful guides, and look for a Spanish language
