Instagram has announced new tools to help users deal with drug abuse. As per The Verge, the image-based social media platform is displaying a pop-up to offer support when users search for certain drug-related hashtags. This includes references to illegal drugs, opioids and other frequently abused substances. The prompt reads, “If you or someone you know is struggling with opioid or substance misuse, find ways to get free and confidential treatment referrals, as well as information about substance abuse, prevention, and recovery.” It will obviously not stop anyone from searching for drugs on the platform but provide some time to pause, reflect and maybe encourage them to find help. The message shows ‘Get Support’, ‘See Posts Anyway’ and ‘Cancel’ options.
