Finding resources for help with substance abuse can be less of a challenge than determining which resources are the best for you and which you can trust to get the best information and treatment possible.Luckily, there are quite a few organizations whose sole mission is to educate people about substance abuse so that they will be primed and ready when they decide to seek out the help of a treatment or rehab clinic. Below, you’ll find a few of these resources.
This well-respected non-profit site is a fantastic resource if you’re looking for a comprehensive explanation of just about any kind of addiction you can imagine.

Curious what you should do if you suspect that someone is an addict? They’re more than happy to offer advice.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration was started in 1992 with the mission to bring treatment for psychological issues and chemical dependency to those most in need, while at the same time making sure that research in those areas was made known to general health care providers. The SAMHSA website provides news, helpful publications, and depth of knowledge about addiction and treatment.
This website offers many resources for help with substance abuse that are similar to SAMHSA, but it is written specifically for parents who are trying to help their addicted children—especially teens. The site delves into drug issues that are specific to teens and young adults, and offers parents advice in four key areas: prevention, intervention, getting treatment, and recovering. They also have in-depth information on more than 40 of the most common drugs that are abused—everything from the substances you’d expect (alcohol, ecstasy, cocaine, and so on) to those that are more off the beaten path (bath salts and Dextromethorphan (DXM), found in common over the counter medications).
