At Chooper’s Guide, we believe knowledge is power, and while we have an entire section dedicated to relevant articles and the latest research, Chooper • pedia will eventually become a community effort, where individuals have the chance to add, modify and/or suggest topics and categories [subject to review and approval for appropriateness to this site.]

For now, we are building this section with content that is within the public domain and provided by institutions such as: NIDA (National Institute on Drug Abuse), NIAAA (National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism), and SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration). As the Chooper • pedia section is built out, we will provide opportunities for visitors to add their voice and their expertise, whether it be knowledge of street slang, an obscure study or the latest protocols for treating co-occurring disorders. In the meantime, let us know what you’d like to know, and we’ll do our best to add it in a timely manner.

Together, we can expand Chooper • pedia to be the Internet’s most comprehensive resource site on all things related to addiction. Together we can end the misunderstandings, stigma and shame that surround this brain disease and all of its familial and societal ramifications.
