HBO's Addiction Project

A great resource for learning about addiction . . . HBO's Addiction Project, a multi-media campaign and documentary series aimed at helping Americans understand addiction as a treatable brain disease.

It contains great information about adolescent brain development, early onset alcoholism, addiction among adolescents, and addiction and the brain's pleasure pathway. Also included are sections about understanding addiction, treatment, aftercare, and discrimination and stigma.
