Online Drug rehabilitation telephone number directory web site, http://www.recoveryconnection.org , recently updated their drug rehab resources page. The new page encourages users to participate by adding resources to their database of useful information.

By allowing contributions from users, the site can offer an unlimited amount of resources to help those seeking recovery help. Recovery Resources is broken down into categories, like addiction treatment and health resources, professional associations, government agencies, and others to which site visitors can post links, articles, and more.

Web sites often encourage users to participate or to contribute "user-generated" content as a way to increase popularity of the site, but user contribution can lead to some unexpected results. Often, content coming from random users has an increased risk of receiving irrelevant or inappropriate content. There is an increased concern for inappropriate stories or misinformation about drug rehab or drug abuse. According to the site's Online Marketing Director, Paul Geller, "(They) have taken the necessary steps to moderate all content posted to the site."

All editorial guidelines must be followed. Editorial guidelines and instructions for becoming a resource are posted on the website at http://www.recoveryconnection.org/links_directory/ . Your web site will be reviewed and you will be notified upon acceptance. Recovery Connection reserves the right to reject any web site that is not aligned with our editorial requirements.

Drug rehab and addiction treatment is becoming a highly competitive online market and innovative approaches, like allowing users to post resources, must be taken to make sure reliable, relevant information is still given precedence over the throngs of ad-driven sites that saturate the search results for information on topics including in-patient rehab, out-patient rehab, drug detox, rehab centers, and more.
