COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Rehab.Help.org is a community organization dedicated to empowering people suffering from substance abuse addiction with tools and resources to start their personal journey toward recovery. We create and publish comprehensive, unbiased, free web-based resources that have been featured and are referenced by many governmental agencies and organizations across the web.

The vast majority of people who need treatment for substance abuse do not seek it. Though there are many barriers that hinder people from getting the help they need, awareness is a significant factor. This can be in the form of lack of recognition or just not knowing the available avenues for help. So we created a comprehensive set of guides that provide information on many of the prevailing substance abuses that are affecting our communities today, various care options, and many free resources.  Below are examples of our top guides:

  • Guide to Alcohol Addiction
  • Guide to Heroin Addiction
  • Guide to Methamphetamine Addition
  • Guide to Cocaine Addiction
