The Recovery Village

http://www.therecoveryvillage.com/drug-treatment-guide/

The goal of this guide is to supplement resouces like ones you have already linked and provide answers to help navigate the often confusing and intimidating process of looking for treatment. While there are many great resources on the web, we found that many of them do not address the most common concerns in an accessible and centralized manner. You can find many of these common concerns in the left hand column of our guide.

We are dedicated to providing comprehensive information about the treatment process, frequently asked questions and the path to full recovery. This guide is the result of extensive work between clinicians, addiction professionals and the Recovery Village web team. Please have a look at our guide at your earliest conveinence, as I feel that you may find them to be an important addition as well.
