DRS is very proud to announce that our call center partner RNT CONSULTING LLC has got their accreditation from the state of Florida. See it here

 This certification confirms that our call center has met the standard ofthroughout the state of Florida regarding the services offered to our clients reaching our website.

One of the problems within the field of addiction is some "referral agencies" are, in fact, owned by treatment centers to fill their beds, which is by itself misleading visitors. This is widely covered on the Internet https://theintercept.com/2017/10/17/google-search-drug-use-opioid-epidemic/.

 DRS and RNT CONSULTING LLC are an independent website and call center not owned by any treatment. We are also trying to refer you to treatment that believes in good treatment practice, not rehabs that substitute an addiction with another dependency using medication. We believe that a drug-free life can be achieved. Medication can be used but only for detox purpose.

Our goal is to give you the possibility of attain a drug-free life.

Alcohol And Drug Abuse Center Treatments For Seniors In Ohio

All throughout the state of Ohio there are well over five different locations where a treatment center for addiction offers specific programs for older adults and seniors. It is unfortunate when it happens, but a senior adult can become addicted to a medication they may be taking. For example, if a person is prescribed a pain medication and the proper instructions of use are not followed; the body can develop a physical dependency to it, which will later lead to a mental dependency. This is where an addiction can take hold and potentially cause more health problems, on top of what already may be there.
