About Us

Last updated: Monday, 08, November 2021


Addicted.org, also known as Drug Rehab Services, is a substance use resource that's completely free. We began our endeavor over 15 years ago, with the goal to educate people about addiction and connect them to the 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.

Many of us at Addicted.org have personally recovered from substance use, gaining invaluable experience and knowledge that separates us from others in the field. This allows a level of care and compassion that we believe shows in our work.

We specifically list programs that we believe give people the best chance to succeed, programs where we would refer a loved one. We have substance use treatment specialists on standby, waiting to help connect people with the right treatment resource for them. This is done through an over-the-phone assessment that's also free of charge.

This is where we can provide direction and support for both the person struggling with addiction and their family. No one is alone in this.

Our Directory

Our database is regularly updated and includes 70+ types of services that can be searched by state, county, or city. We also provide a wide range of information about substances of use, types of treatment, intervention, and many FAQs. Addicted.org is also proud to feature qualified professionals who work with us to ensure that you're given the most accurate, up to date information possible.

What Happens When You Call Us

When you call Addicted.org, you get a real person. Our treatment specialists listen to what's going on with you and take the time to help you make the selection that's right for you. You don't have to call Addicted.org to use our website and find treatment, but we're here for you if you need help with the process.

We recognize that people who are looking for treatment are in a crisis. If someone hasn't been through the process before, finding rehab can be overwhelming and confusing. We take whatever we can off your shoulders by asking the right questions and getting you the answers, you need. This is your decision, but we can help you arrive there.

You can expect that the person who answers your call will be calm, caring, and knowledgeable about addiction and treatment. They're going to 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 just ask questions and gain some more knowledge if you don't feel ready yet.

We will go over your options with you and refer you to treatment centers that are the best fit for your needs. Since we're not affiliated with any one treatment center, you'll have the best options in the field to choose from.

Selecting a Drug Treatment Provider

If you don't want to call us, you're welcome to use our site's directory to help you find treatment. There are many different ways to search through our directory so that you can 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 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 to fall into. Try looking for what makes you uncomfortable. This way, you can't be manipulated by your addiction 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 make the difference between someone completing treatment successfully, and another relapse.

Commitment to Ethics

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