NIDA has developed step-by-step guides for people with loved ones who might have an addiction problem, or for people seeking to help themselves. They are in simple, “Q and A” format, and include easy-to-understand videos. These guides focus on the steps needed to determine if a person needs treatment; how to find it; what happens in treatment, how to find help paying for it; privacy issues, and more.
Note that these guides are customized into 4 categories:
for teens seeking help
for adults seeking help
for parents or guardians seeking help for their teen or young adult child for people trying to help an adult loved one
