Erowid is a member-supported organization providing access to reliable, non-judgmental information about psychoactive plants, chemicals, and related issues. We work with academic, medical, and experiential experts to develop and publish new resources, as well as to improve and increase access to already existing resources. We also strive to ensure that these resources are maintained and preserved as a historical record for the future.
NeuroSoup is based upon principles of harm reduction and strives to educate people around the world on responsible drug use. We hope to educate people about the positive and negative aspects of all drugs, whether they are legal, available by prescription, or illegal. Moreover, NeuroSoup aids in addicted individuals’ recovery by providing online self help drug and alcohol rehab resources.
Good ideas and advice… could apply to all kinds of addiction and behaviours that are habit-forming. Note that withdrawal from alcohol can be dangerous for some. Go slowly and carefully.
The organisation campaigns directly on issues that impact on our clients – it is their experiences that drive the policy work that Release does and why we advocate for evidenced based drug policies that are founded on principles of public health rather than a criminal justice approach.
Addiction & Art
Recent scientific findings have proven addiction to be a disease of the brain, affecting both brain and behavior. Addiction Art has the potential to take this message to the masses, most of whom still consider addiction to be a “weakness” or “moral failing” worthy of punishment. It can convey the human experience of addiction in a way that can help the general public understand addiction as a preventable and treatable chronic disease. Artworks about addiction and recovery can stimulate dialogue, can teach, and at this crucial point in history, can support contemporary scientific research for our world’s well-being.
