What Happens When You Call Us
You get a real person when you call the number listed on our website. A rehab specialist listens to what’s happening with you and takes the time to help you make the right selection for you. You don’t have to call the number listed on Addicted.org to use our website and find treatment.
We recognize that people who are looking for treatment are in a crisis. Finding rehab can be overwhelming and confusing if someone hasn’t been through the process before. We take whatever we can off your shoulders by asking the right questions and getting the answers you need. This is your decision, but we can help you get there.
You can expect the person who answers your call to be calm, caring, and knowledgeable about addiction and treatment. They will want to know about your history, but the call is 100% confidential and protected by law. You aren’t committed to making any decision and are free to ask questions and gain more knowledge if you don’t feel ready yet.
Selecting a Drug Treatment Provider
If you don’t want to call the number listed on our site, you’re welcome to use our site’s directory to help you find treatment. There are many different ways to search through our directory to find exactly what you’re looking for. For instance, if you have a language barrier or need financial assistance, you can search by language or payment type. We also feature listings by the insurance provider, location, and program type. These features allow for ease of access in a way that’s unmatched in the industry.
Finding the right program is vital. Selecting something because it seems the easiest or fastest is a deadly trap. Try looking for what makes you uncomfortable. This way, your addiction can’t manipulate you into choosing what will ultimately give you a way out. We often suggest choosing a location far from home or a method of treatment you haven’t tried before. These simple factors can differentiate between someone completing treatment successfully and another relapse.
Our directory of drug and alcohol rehabs was created to help individuals find quality care as fast as possible. To accomplish this, we researched thousands of centers across the country and organized the information, making it easy to navigate. This allows those seeking help to narrow down their options and find help quickly.
How We Choose Our Centers
Addicted.org hand-selects each center listed in our database using the following criteria:
Licensure, Certifications, & Accreditations
Qualified Clinical and Medical Staff
Effective Treatment Methods
We ensure each new center we list is licensed by their state and check that they have an established clinical and medical staff unless the treatment is fully holistic. Before listing any new center, we check its online reputation and ensure they have a good history of working with clients.
As a rule, we ensure that the treatment methodology offered by the centers is tested and has a history of success. We include evidence-based, holistic, and alternative treatment models. We refrain from listing centers that utilize untested treatment practices that do have a proven track record of success.
Certifications and Accreditations like JCAHO and CARF ensure treatment centers meet a certain standard. We prioritize these listings but also include centers that are not accredited. We do this because it gives individuals more options to choose from, and the absence of accreditation does not always mean the center is of low quality.
Finally, we are constantly monitoring the centers in our listing to ensure they meet our high ethical standards. If we find that a center is partaking in harmful or exploitative practices, they are removed from our directory.
