AddictionResource.com announces that the Switzerland-based Health on the Net (HON) Foundation has recertified their website for the third consecutive year as a source of accurate and transparent health information. In today’s digital age of misinformation and conflicting internet resources, certifications like those HON provides can help consumers choose trustworthy and accurate health-related websites.
Eduardo Gonzales, Head of Digital Marketing for the site, states that more and more families are seeking addiction information online. AddictionResource.com has been recognized by several respected government and academic organizations such as Get Smart About Drugs, Rutgers University and Oregon State University, which have listed AddictionResource.com as a trusted resource on their own websites.
“Addiction is a serious problem that can rarely be tackled successfully without professional help,” Mr. Gonzales notes. “We are delighted that this month, the 40,000th person seeking addiction treatment has found help on AddictionResource.com,” he added.
AddictionResource.com collaborates with licensed medical professionals and academic researchers at medical universities, to provide people struggling with addiction and their families with the most up-to-date information on addiction treatment and resources.
Mr. Gonzales explains that recovering from substance addiction is a 4-step process, involving awareness and acknowledgement, commitment to a course of action, rehabilitation, and maintenance. “The journey to recovery and a life of sobriety begins long before most people realize they’re on any kind of journey,” he says.
While not a treatment center, AddictionResource.com provides assistance each step of the way with a focus on helping people struggling with addiction take the first steps towards recovery. To this end, the site provides carefully curated, accurate content on addiction in general, specific substances, inpatient and outpatient treatment guides, and rehabilitation guides, all tailored to a variety of target populations, including women, teens, LGBT, veterans, men, poly substance users and more.
AddictionResource.com also maintains an updated database of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings and other events around the United States.
Substance Abuse Hotline
AddictionResource.com also connects visitors to trained addiction advisors on a free and confidential hotline to help addicts or their loved ones find substance abuse treatment, answer questions, or request printed materials. The hotline provides treatment options not only for people with private insurance, but they can also advise on how to get into government-funded facilities. They also provide support to people dealing with withdrawals, and for those just want to talk.
