Since 2001, the goal of Addict Help has been helping those with an addiction find resources to aid in a successful recovery and overcome addictive behavior.
We are a small group of dedicated people who know recovery works miracles.
One of our main objectives is to research the addiction community and find the highest quality resources so visitors to our website can make a better-informed choices.
After talking with people in recovery, and treatment professionals who help others get clean and sober, we have created our list of the best rehabs in the US.
All of the information provided on our website is free to use by anyone with an addiction, as well as family, friends trying to help a friend or family member transition through troubled times.
We know firsthand through our own experience how difficult it can be to live a life in the grips of the disease of addiction. We struggled for years trying to find a way out and through the help of many others, we found our way home to a happy and fulfilling life of sobriety.
All of our team are in recovery. It wasn’t easy and it wasn’t quick, but luckily we had an incredible support system that included wonderful friends, family, therapists, and counselors that stuck with us during some very rough years.
For anyone that thinks their life is hopeless and they need to rely on drugs or alcohol just to get out of bed, function normally, or make it through each day, we want to let them know we are living proof it is possible to recover and stop using any type of substance.
There are so many others out there just like us who are living sober and productive lives. We’ve all been in the same place and remind each other it’s possible to be happy again.
We also know that addiction is sometimes tied to mental illness and that is often a reason why we rely on drugs or alcohol. Having a mental health issue does NOT mean a person is broken. Everyone at some point in their life endures stress, anxiety, and depression – it’s a normal part of being human.
It’s important to recognize that mental health, like addiction, can be treated and managed with proper help. Unfortunately, it’s almost impossible to do it alone.
There is a wide variety of effective medications available to help those that need them. There are also many therapies that work with medication to help those that need a little push in the right direction. In some cases, medication combined with therapy is the perfect combination.
The worst thing any of us can do is attempt to self-medicate with alcohol or drugs to cope with our problems. Using drugs or alcohol to deal with mental health issues like depression or PTSD is known as a “dual diagnosis” or co-occurring disorder.
Having a co-occurring disorder will only complicate and amplify the symptoms, instead of making them better. This is a classic example of how many of us become addicted.
Throughout our website, we try to write about the things that we’ve discovered through years in recovery and discuss topics and questions that we have heard others ask in group therapy.
We want everyone to know that the recovery community is made up of kind and caring people, who were once down and out, yet are now thriving.
All of us want to encourage and support others that are in a lost period of their life. We want to instill a glimmer of hope so they can stay positive enough to do what is necessary to find the path to sobriety.
Nobody should ever feel they are alone in the world and there are many others who are willing to help.
We hope everyone finds our information to be a useful resource for either getting help or staying sober and on track in recovery.
Wishing Everyone a Happy and Sober Life of Recovery,
The Addict Help Team
