    What is a good way to monetize a site about drug addiction? It is a PR 2 site with very low traffic. Around 500 visits a day if the plugin Wassup can be believed. That is on the No Spam/No Bot setting.
    What can I put on there besides Adsense.

    Thanks for considering my problem.

    You can put Clickbank products that are related to helping with drug addiction.

    If there aren't any, I'd recommend you create your own informational product. Although there a lot of free resources for combating drug addiction, I'm sure that you could make it a worthwhile project if you became an authority in this field.

    This is something that you will want to test out. Adsense may be the easiest overall, but it might not be the most profitable for your site. Depending upon what your site covers you may want to look into CPA networks such as Market Health. I know that either Commission Junction or Shareasale have vitamin offers which may work if your site covers those topics.

    I'd target keywords with high CPC and go with Adsenses and Clickbank.

    A quick Google Keyword Tool lookup shows that drug addiction / rehab center keyword are high competition keywords. Hard to estimate CPC, but it seems competitive enough that you could be getting some decent money even off 500 visits a day.

    I have a 300 visit per day website in a less competitive field that makes almost $1K per month...

    I would try AdSense (if they don't have a problem with this) and/or ClickBank. Have you checked the CB Marketplace?

    Clickbank or amazon products on drug addiction maybe? I think there's some vitamins or herbal medications that can help with addiction problems...
    If you have any resources or specialization of drug addiction/management, then go ahead and try and sell your own e-book. Gdluck!

    I hit thanks for everyone with a useful comment. Thanks again. I will look into all of it, including making an e product.

    What type of e product are you thinking. You can get all this stuff for free online or in almost any neighborhood church. I like the idea if I knew what to do.

    It's about drug addiction though, I'm gessing how to get over a drug addiction - I doubt he wants to advertise 'How to make meth' lol

    Go with Adsense, and maybe a click bank product. Maybe even start a directory of rehab centres and charge for inclusion.

    You could try to write an e-book like "Overcome your XY addiction in 5 simple steps"

    Of course it is a bs product, but a lot of people seem to fall for the quit smoking guides, so why not do the same for other addictions.

    How about some paywall, maybe a pay per article or membership?

    I'm planning a similar project about addiction, related to a more focused topic.

    TNX!
