Most content about substance abuse and addiction recovery is written by and for medical professionals
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 19, 2009
Government estimates report more than 22 million* Americans struggle with drug and alcohol addiction, yet fewer than ten percent ever seek the treatment they so desperately need. That leaves roughly 19.8 million people who either can't get help or don't know where to turn. All Treatment is trying to do something about that. Today they announce the public release of http://www.AllTreatment.com, which strives to be the most comprehensive online resource for those 19.8 million individuals caught in the grip of addiction.
The vast majority of substance abuse and addiction recovery information available today is written by and for medical professionals; although it's rich with clinical information, it's hard for the average user to find, understand and act upon. By combining deep editorial and video content from industry thought-leaders as well as a user-friendly directory of over 10,000 licensed and certified addiction treatment facilities nationwide, All Treatment is bridging the information gap for all those in need of help.
The need for this bridge is validated by senior members of the addiction recovery industry. Ronald Hunsicker, President/CEO of NAATP (National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers), acknowledges the need that All Treatment aspires to meet. "Most content about substance abuse and addiction recovery is written by and for medical professionals" Hunsicker said. Continuing, "We're excited to see that All Treatment is providing relevant and useful information about addiction recovery to people and families who are dealing with substance abuse."
Today's public release is accompanied by an aggressive online media campaign by All Treatment to get the word out to the other 19.8 million Americans that there is now a credible source of information for all addiction treatment options and an independent source to guide them through recovery.
