Lives of Substance website

Drawing on in-depth qualitative interviews conducted at Curtin University's National Drug Research Institute in Melbourne, Australia, the Lives of Substance website presents detailed life stories of people who consider themselves to have an addiction, dependence or drug habit. Also presented are key themes found in the interviews:

• How alcohol and other drug use fits into everyday life

• Coping with stigma and discrimination

• Looking after health and well-being

• Seeking help or initiating change

This website is well worth consulting for getting an insight into addiction
