Now, it's easier than ever to learn about the health risks of drugs, find the signs and symptoms of use or find out how to help your loved one recover from their addiction.

One of the biggest problems families have when dealing with an addicted loved one is realizing that they truly are addicted and need rehab. When contacting rehab centers, many families report that their loved one's drug problem has been going on for years but they never realized the situation really was addiction that required rehab to resolve it. By trying to help the person find a new job, pay his rent, fix her car or solve other problems, families have unwittingly enabled their loved ones to continue to use drugs.

"We wanted to offer families easy-to-use information on all the major drugs their loved ones may run into trouble with," said Clark Carr, president of Narconon International. "We have created new features on our website that act as indexes to the wealth of information available we have available. Now, it's easier than ever to learn about the health risks of drugs, find the signs and symptoms of use or find out how to help your loved one recover from their addiction."

There are eleven new guides to drug information made available this month on the site which can all be reached through http://www.narconon.org/drug-abuse. These guides cover all the major drugs of abuse including:

Alcohol
Cocaine
Club Drugs
Hallucinogens
Heroin
Marijuana
Methamphetamines
Polydrug abuse
Prescription drug abuse
Stimulants

"Each section will take a family to a variety of articles that can help them understand what addiction is and what kind of danger their loved one may be in, due to his drug use," added Carr. "Once they understand this, they will also understand the urgency of finding a good rehab program for him or her."

The index to information on prescription drugs, for example, leads one to articles on:

  • Prescription drug abuse around the world
  • Signs and symptoms of prescription drug abuse
  • Health risks of abusing prescription drugs
  • 10 things parents may not know about the abuse of prescription drugs
  • What you can do about prescription drug abuse
  • Prescription drug abuse history

For nearly fifty years, Narconon centers around the world have offered an effective rehabilitation program that resolves the problem of addiction for the majority of those graduating. Narconon centers also offer families many resources such as these new indexes to help then deal with difficult situations like the addiction of a loved one and have provided drug prevention services for millions of youth and adults around the world.
