Bringing the Power of Science to Bear on Drug Abuse and Addiction

5: Visit NIDA

Visit NIDA's website at www.drugabuse.gov

We’ve covered a lot of ground today. By now everyone here should have an idea of what drugs do to our brain, but the information we shared today is just a beginning. There’s much more to discover about how the brain works. Take some time on your own to learn about this subject. The Internet is an excellent place to start.

To learn more, check out NIDA’s home page on the World Wide Web and see what you can find out about the latest discoveries about the brain and how it responds to drugs.

For scientists, the brain is unexplored territory like the surface of Mars for the Pathfinder expedition. It is my hope that some of you will become scientists interested in how the brain works, so that you might help us understand more about addiction and help us solve this problem.
