About Us

Drug Rehab Services is a family-owned business dedicated to helping people find substance use resources. We began our endeavor over 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.

We are a close-knit group made up of compassionate individuals and addiction professionals. Let our family save yours.

The DRS Family

The DRS team comprises individuals with personal and professional experience dealing with substance use. This allows us to truly understand what people are going through and we believe this shows in our work. Our care, compassion, and experience  separates us  from others in the field.

Founder

Marcel Gemme

Marcel Gemme

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with substance use for over 20 years. He started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. In 2004, with drug and alcohol problems constantly increasing, he created his first website to reach and help a more significant number of people. As the need for substance use services continued to grow, in 2009, the website Addicted.org was created under the organization DRS USA. Drug Rehab Services has become a leader in North America in substance use resources. Marcel and DRS's ultimate goal is to provide a threefold approach to substance use and addiction recovery that focuses on education, prevention, and rehabilitation.

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

Addicted.org’s team of addiction professionals has over 80 years of combined experience in substance use and addiction recovery.
