Alcohol, Other Drugs, and Health: Current Evidence is a free online newsletter that summarizes the latest clinically relevant research on alcohol, illicit drugs, and health. Through its summaries and other features, the newsletter aims to highlight alcohol and other drug issues and provide valuable information that can be applied in clinical teaching, practice, and research.

Published every two months, the newsletter includes the following features:
•Succinct and timely summaries of important alcohol and other drug research published in peer-reviewed journals; these summaries, which include commentary relevant to primary care practice, are written by physicians with clinical, research, and educational expertise in alcohol- and drug-related issues

•PowerPoint slide presentations that can be downloaded and used as teaching tools:
◦Update on Alcohol, Other Drugs, and Health, a "grand-rounds-like" presentation of the research summaries in the newsletter
◦Journal Club, which critically appraises a study highlighted in the newsletter using the User's Guides to the Medical Literature

The newsletter, a project of the Boston Medical Center, is supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and is produced in cooperation with the Boston University Schools of Medicine and Public Health.
