Best App on Drug Addiction!
● Club Drugs
● And many more...
Drug abuse is a serious problem that affects almost every community and family in some way. Each year drug abuse results in around 40 million serious illnesses or injuries among people in the United States.
Drug abuse also plays a role in many major social problems, such as drugged driving, violence, stress and child abuse. Drug abuse can lead to homelessness, crime and missed work or problems with keeping a job. It harms unborn babies and destroys families.
This useful app discusses the most important topics in drug abuse and addiction and is ideal for all medical professionals, medical residents and interns, nurses, medical students, and of course curious lay people who just want to learn more about drug abuse and addiction.

As a licensed health care provider for the last 26 years, I am appalled at the blatant propoganda and mis-information presented in this app.
Also, using a cannabis leaf as the icon for this "drug addiction" app is just plain idiotic.
p.s. "Michael Quach", give me a break. Quack is more appropriate.
I think I can say that clinicians, public health professionals, and interested laypeople will find no use at all for this app. Its "author" provides unattributed text lifted directly from web pages maintained by the National Institutes of Health, and from these sloppily cobbles together two or three very short paragraphs for each of 20 abused drugs or other addiction-related topics. As other reviewers have noted, in it you will find the kind of hyperbole we often use in trying to deter kids from trying drugs, but you won't find any useful or interesting detail about, say, mechanisms of action, pharmacokinetics, drug-induced neuroadaptation/plasticity, polypharmacy and drug interactions, diagnostic practices and criteria, therepeutic interventions, epidemiology, links to relevant scholarship at NLM/PubMed, etc, etc. Bodies like the NIH, and specifically NIDA, have at least two missions. One is rhetorical (to say loudly, "don't take drugs!") and the other is empirical (to dispassionately come to a scientific understanding of how and why drugs are addictive and to develop treatments for those who do become addicted). If you're going to crib your content from government websites anyway and offer it to physicians in an app, I don't understand why you would harvest weary rhetoric for 4th graders, while ignoring the vast amount of useful empirical data these governmental bodies also make available online at no cost. So this app just can't be serious. I can only guess that it might be an attempt by someone to see how high, as it were, they can get an app ranked simply by using a cannabis leaf in the design for the app's icon/button. If this is the case, it's obviously working.
Love the icon
