This website was very informative on the specific symptoms and side effects which drug addiction and withdrawal can cause to an individual. This website would be extremely helpful to not only those individuals going through the withdrawal, but also any family members who may have to be assisting someone during this particular time in their lives. The advice given is very specific, and presets factual peices of evidence as to why the methods and symptoms which are outlined do yeild results.

Breaks down each source of addiction, and presents the affects of which the drug has on an individual and the ways in which that individual can attempt to cope with these adverse affects. It also states how if the symptoms become to severe (what to specifically look for is stated in each article) then an individual should immediately seek medical attention. This article would be helpful to both people suffering from drug addiction and wish to understand it more, as well as those people living with someone who is suffering from the affects.

This website is very insightful, as it gives many different facts about drugs. It provides links to 30 different website about different types of drugs, different abuses of drugs, and different ways that drugs can affect you. This website could be very useful for people needing to assist a family member or a friend.
