Substance abuse, including tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs, effects people of all ages. It also effects people who don't use at all--the families, friends, and co-workers of people who do use. Despite what popular culture tells and shows us everyday in music, TV, movies, and advertising, substance abuse just isn't cool--it is devastating.
We hope this page provides you with some help and direction whether you want to stop using or are just looking for more accurate information on one of the many drugs that continually pop up. If you have any feedback or resources you think we should include just send us an email.
