These people are taking a huge step forward by recognizing they have an addiction problem and asking for help, so we want to be there to answer the phones as quickly as possible and give them the referrals and other information they need
Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) May 25, 2011
Today Treatment USA, a prominent online and telephone referral service, announced that it has expanded its free telephone hotline for referrals to drug rehabilitation centers. The company has hired and trained new staff members to assist callers, decreasing average wait times by over 90%.
Treatment USA President and founder, Philip Cory, notes that financial difficulties are often a contributing factor to substance abuse, and that the recent economic downturn and high unemployment rates have been the impetus behind the company’s expansion. “In recent months, we’ve seen a higher call volume from people who are interested in learning more about addiction treatment programs and obtaining referrals for themselves or for loved ones.” In the last month alone, Treatment USA experienced a 25% increase in calls over the previous year.
“Having more phone lines and staff members will help us continue to meet the needs of struggling addicts across the nation,” said Mr. Cory. “These people are taking a huge step forward by recognizing they have an addiction problem and asking for help, so we want to be there to answer the phones as quickly as possible and give them the referrals and other information they need.”
