About Us

Founded in 2010, Addictions.com is a leading informational resource and web guide for those impacted by substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. Owned and maintained by Rehab Media Network, Addictions.com provides accurate, informative addiction and behavioral health content, a comprehensive directory of rehab facilities and addiction treatment centers across the U.S., a library of free resources, and information for initiating treatment.

Our Mission

Addictions.com was founded with two specific goals in mind: to provide in-depth, medically accurate information to those struggling with substance abuse and related conditions; and to connect those individuals with the free resources and rehabs that can best meet their needs.

What We Do

As a part of the RMN network, Addictions strives to help our audience make informed decisions when seeking treatment for drug or alcohol addiction by providing all the free resources, tools, and educational content they need in one convenient location without the hassle of leaving our website.

Our experienced team of authors, medical professionals, and editorial experts write, review, and update all content to ensure it meets the highest editorial standards. Content topics are chosen based on data from real-life search queries, helping us better understand the treatment services people are seeking, the substances being abused in real-time around the nation, and the free addiction treatment resources that would be most helpful and impactful.

Our Core Values


We hold ourselves to the highest levels of integrity, we do not sell or broker admissions, and we never engage in unethical “consultant contracts.”


According to data, only 1 in 10 people with a substance use disorder will seek treatment. We strive to reach the nine individuals who might mistakenly believe treatment is out of their reach or they can’t afford it.


Our content is reviewed and updated on a consistent basis. All articles are written using government-led, medically reviewed, or university-published resources. And before publication, all final drafts are reviewed for accuracy by seasoned medical professionals.


We build trust by communicating clearly with unwavering candor, honesty, and respect. We are unafraid to show up for difficult conversations.


We are proud to provide the nation’s most comprehensive addiction treatment directory in one place, and our 24/7 toll-free helpline connects you with a caring rehab specialist at no cost with no obligation to enter treatment.


Addiction can affect anyone, regardless of background or economic status. We believe we can help improve lives, and that belief motivates us to educate and support our audience as they work toward recovery.

How Our Helpline Works

When you call the toll-free helpline listed on Addictions.com pages, you are connected with a a real person who understands that the process of finding a rehab can be confusing, frustrating, and overwhelming.
