Information designed specifically to help Veterans and their families. Real stories are shared of strength and recovery, find useful information and local mental health resources, and explore ways to show your support. NIDA's mission is to lead the Nation in bringing the power of science to bear on drug abuse and addiction. This charge has two critical components. The first is the strategic support and conduct of research across a broad range of disciplines. The second is ensuring the rapid and effective dissemination and use of the results of that research to significantly improve prevention and treatment and to inform policy as it relates to drug abuse and addiction. The NIDA for Teens Web site helps educate adolescents ages 11 through 15 (as well as their parents and teachers) on the science behind drug abuse. CADCA is a membership Organization of over 5,000 anti-drug coalitions, each working to make their own community safe, healthy and drug-free. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) works to improve the quality and availability of substance abuse prevention, alcohol and drug addiction treatment and mental health services.
