Substance Abuse in College – 
According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, about four out of five college students drink alcohol. Though drinking has long been the most common form of substance abuse in college, the National Institute on Drug Abuse points out that the use of marijuana, prescription drugs and illicit drugs is on the rise. The good news is that students can be proactive in understanding what constitutes substance abuse, how to keep their own habits in check, and how to spot problems in themselves or others. This guide offers a wealth of resources to help students do all of those things and more.

Teen Rehab Center –
“Your teen’s path to recovery begins here,” says this complex site, one of many devoted to helping teenagers recover from drug abuse. A huge section on addiction includes an encyclopedic listing of everything to which your teenager might possibly be addicted, including some we may not have thought of (rohypnol, salvia, bath salts). A rehab section includes cost of care, among other things, and another section lists 15 conditions known to occur in teens at the same time as drug abuse.
