USA Creator: The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse Available for: Desktop, Mobile Last reviewed: 17/10/2018

Review: A national non-profit research and policy organisation focused on improving the understanding, prevention and treatment of substance use and addiction. Interdisciplinary experts collaborate to enable evidence-based research to influence clinical guidelines and other improvements in healthcare for people who use drugs, their families and the communities in which they live. This is an excellent site to source US statistics and data related to topical issues such as e-cigs and youth uptake of substances, or data related to screening, assessment and treatment. Most useful to social health and medical professionals, and teachers providing drug education curriculum.
