New Guide from the NNLM: Substance Use Disorders

Posted by on January 25th, 2021 Posted in: Blog


 

The Network of National Library of Medicine’s Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Initiative aims raise awareness of National Library of Medicine’s Substance Use Disorders resources and the resources of partner organizations. ​

As part of this initiative, Network of the National Library of Medicine staff launched a new guide to information on Substance Use Disorders. The guide links to free and reliable online resources for general and specific audiences. The “SUD Resources: General” tab is a great place to start learning about SUD with resources from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), and more. The “Libraries” tab provides educational information about Narcan/ Naloxone, a resource guide for public libraries, and more. The “Educators” tab includes classroom resources and information for all ages. The “Community Based Organizations” tab focuses on response to Opioid use in communities and includes the Opioid Epidemic Practical Toolkit: Helping Faith and Community Leaders” from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The “Public Health” tab provides information for public health professionals, including links to resources for locating guidelines, research, and training, and information about safe disposal of unused medications. “Resources by Age or Population” lists recommended resources specific to families, rural populations, faith-based organizations, teens and young adults, and women. The “SUD Training & Education” tab includes links to recorded webinars and other online trainings, suitable for all audiences.
