User tools and features

Users navigate through a series of links located in a frame along the left side of the page.  There is a link to NLM’s PubMed database.  Additionally, there is a link to a page of specialized NCADI (National Clearinghouse for Alcohol & Drug Information) databases.  There is no search feature which allows the user to search all at once; the native interface of each must be searched individually, but there is interesting information to be found.  All contain basic bibliographic citation information and some also contain abstracts.  IDA focuses on prevention and sociological issues; MKT covers marketing of alcohol, tobacco, and drugs; NSAW includes an index of articles on substance abuse and treatment; PMD covers citations to prevention materials developed by both public and private organizations and which are readily available; SNAP contains State Needs Assessments Profiles based on study data; SARFL is a treatment facility locator containing links to 11,000 U.S.-based programs.  There is also a lengthy list of AOL (Alcohol & Other Drugs) databases, which represents both free and licensed resources.  Lists of scholarly journals which frequently publish relevant articles are listed as are lists of relevant Web sites.  The archived ETOH database is also available to be searched.
