Raise Awareness of Substance Misuse with the NNLM Reading Club

Posted by on January 9th, 2020 Posted in: All of Us

January often brings a time of reflection and fresh starts to a new year. Some may be struggling with issues of substance misuse and need resources to learn more about it – whether it has touched them directly or they just want to understand the topic better, especially from a first-person point of view. Substance misuse doesn’t take a holiday – any week is a good week to discuss substance misuse, addiction disorders, and treatment choices for both young and old.

To help get the conversation started, visit the NNLM Reading Club Book Selections and Health Resources Guide for Substance Misuse. Choose one of three featured books:

  • Hey Kiddo by Jarrett J. Krosoczka
  • Blackout by Sarah Hopola
  • Dreamland (YA version) by Sam Quinones

For each of the featured book selections, you can download a discussion guide, promotional materials and corresponding Substance Misuse resources. Short on time? No worries! You can apply to receive a free NNLM Reading Club book kit that includes everything you need to host a book club, delivered to your institution.
