Australia's first dedicated website presenting carefully researched personal stories of alcohol or other drug addiction, dependence or habit -  www.livesofsubstance.org.

The website aims to generate and present much-needed new insights into the range of experiences that make up life for people with drug use experiences of this kind. How do people manage this aspect of their lives? How do they cope with the stigma associated with addiction? What challenges do they face and how do they cope and thrive?

In addressing these questions, Livesofsubstance.org offers new perspectives on people often dismissed or stigmatised as dysfunctional, dangerous or sick. Planned and designed with the help of a large national advisory panel, Livesofsubstance.org aims to support people who take drugs, inform the public about their many different life experiences, and act as an information and training resource for professionals.
