What's New - December 1, 1997

Site of the Month!

The Schaeffer Library is somewhere left of center on drug issues, and some of the pages on it's site show this clearly. One helpful compendium is the Links to Federal Documents on Drug Policy. There's a lot of data here, folks!


For more federal government information, try the healthfinder site. It has dozens of links to information about substance abuse, treatment, prevention and recovery.

PubMed searchable medical database is tops, and is part of the free MedLine project. I got 6 citations in the past 60 days on the term "methamphetamine".
