About DRS

Last updated on: Tuesday, 27 February 2024
  • What You'll Learn

Founded in 2009 by Marcel Gemme, DRS, which stands for Drug Rehab Services, is a family-owned business dedicated to helping people find substance use resources. We began our endeavor about 15 years ago to educate people about addiction and help them find the drug and alcohol treatment resources they need. We’ve done this by compiling one of the largest and most complete directories of drug and alcohol rehabilitation services in the US, which is accessible completely free of charge.

DRS is not a drug rehabilitation center and does not provide services directly. Our mission and philosophy are to educate people about the danger of drugs and alcohol to prevent substance abuse and help individuals connect with services to achieve rehabilitation.

The DRS team is a close-knit group made up of compassionate individuals and addiction professionals. Let our family save yours.

  • Our content is written by experts in the field of substance use and addiction recovery. The DRS team has over 80 years of combined experience.

  • We only use established sources in the field of addiction and mental health, making our content trustworthy and accurate.

Commitment to Ethics

At DRS, we are committed to helping you find quality substance use information and treatment resources. That means not forwarding false information and only listing programs to which we would refer one of our loved ones. Be wary of programs that offer a quick-fix approach or immediately try to find out how much money you have. Both are signs that the facility doesn’t have your best interests. If something sounds too good to be true, then it usually is. While we do our best never to list programs like these, it’s still vital to talk to a facility and asks questions before making your final decision. The field of substance use treatment is ever-changing.

Commitment to Quality

The DRS team of addiction professionals has over 80 years of combined experience in substance use and addiction recovery. They use this experience when assessing each service listed in our directory. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding any of the listings in our directory, you can contact the team directly at Communications@addicted.org. We will utilize your feedback to make any necessary updates to our list of services.

Our Latest Achievement

At DRS, we take immense pride in unveiling our latest initiative, the SUPE: Substance Use Prevention Education program. This comprehensive project has been a focal point for our organization, enabling us to channel our collective efforts into spreading vital information about the danger of substance use. Through an extensive collection of engaging multimedia content and practical exercises, we’ve crafted a curriculum that caters to a broad demographic, including young students, teenagers, educational professionals, emergency responders, and the elderly.

Our guiding principle at DRS is the firm belief in the possibility of achieving a fulfilling life without the influence of drugs. This vision propels us forward and informs the educational content we produce for the SUPE platform. We are dedicated to imparting this philosophy and providing the tools necessary for individuals of all ages to understand and embrace a drug-free lifestyle. By sharing these resources, DRS is not just educating but also inspiring positive change in communities, reinforcing the message that a life of sobriety is not only attainable but also rewarding.


The DRS Scholarship is a financial aid opportunity aimed at supporting students who are committed to addressing the issue of substance use. The scholarship consists of an essay contest that rewards $1,000 to the student who submits the best essay on a specified topic related to substance use. This initiative underscores DRS’ dedication to assisting individuals impacted by substance use and their belief in the importance of higher education for all.
