My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Erowid Center, Grass Valley, CA, USA
Erowid is an incredible online resources for anything related to mental and physical help relating to pharmacology. I started using the website when I was very young and very curious about that world, and it provided me with in-depth, personal accounts of the experiences I was curious about, and in some cases, longed for. Had I not discovered this resource, I believe that I could have really hurt myself, lacking guidance, contextual knowledge, and maybe some common sense. Erowid delivers information and personal accounts of human experience that effectively de-stigmatize the human relationship to substance, and frankly, in my experience, acts as far more of a deterrent than a catalyst for participating in those behaviors. If one does choose to participate, Erowid provides resources that educate and (hopefully) ensure safer practices.
