    Our staff of trained counselors use validated screening and assessment tools to make recommendations on the appropriate level of care. Counselors initiate treatment connections using our national database of treatment and recovery resources, as well as other reputable sources, to identify programs and help the individual to coordinate engagement in services as needed. Additional factors such as insurance, transportation, and individual preferences are utilized to make personalized recommendations.

    We Built What We Needed

    The Addiction Policy Forum Resource Database was born from the frustration we felt as family members looking to help our loved ones find treatment for use disorder.

     

     

    We lose hundreds of Americans every day to a disease that is preventable and treatable.

     

    The Resource Database has been built by the Addiction Policy Forum. We are the families impacted by substance use; we have lost loved ones to addiction; we have searched for help online only to find for-profit treatment centers marketing substandard care.

     

    We decided to create what we and countless others so desperately needed so that other families don’t have to struggle alone and fewer lives are lost. The Resource Database fills a critical gap in how addiction is addressed in this country and moves us closer to treating substance use disorders like other chronic diseases.  

     

    Addiction Policy Forum and the Resource Database support patients, families, and professionals with critical information about addiction and connect them to quality treatment and recovery resources through our vetted database.

     

     

     

    Keep the Resource Database free for all who need it.
