CORK Database

An archived edition of the CORK DATABASE is now online. Developed for the Dartmouth Medical School by Jean Kinney, CORK indexes resources about alcohol, other drugs, and behavioral addictions from the years 1970 to 2014 (with selected records prior to 1970). The database is bibliographic, including mostly abstracted journal articles, but also some books, book chapters, reports, and conference papers. The Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is now hosting CORK and is committed to preserving this rich and unique literature resource for both the addictions and information fields, and making it freely available to all online searchers. We encourage you to search its 121,000+ records to create a bibliographic listing of your topic, and then to take that list to your own librarian/library for assistance in retrieval of the full documents.


drugwiseThe mission of DrugWise follows very much in the tradition of DrugScope – and for those of you with long memories, its predecessor – the Institute for the Study of Drug Dependence – to provide drug information which is topical, evidence-based, and non-judgmental – and to promote this through media work, public speaking, and lecturing.

It also reviews the scientific evidence on polydrug use, treatment demand for cannabis and developments since the legalization of cannabis for recreational use in some parts of the world. Chapter II focuses on the mechanisms of the interaction between the world drug problem and all aspects of sustainable development through the lens of the Sustainable Development Goals.
