Palm Springs, CA (PRWEB) February 15, 2012
Dependency.net, a website devoted to offering information and resources to possible addicts, was launched today. The site features articles on substance abuse, drug addiction, and alcoholism; especially focusing on tolerance and dependence. For people who already recognize they need chemical dependency treatment, Dependency.net can help them locate detox and rehabilitation centers.
Offering a wealth of information about prescription drug dependency, illicit drugs, and alcohol, Dependency.net hopes people who visit the site will gain a better understanding of addiction. For potential alcoholics, there is also an alcoholism self-assessment test. While this test isn’t a medical assessment, it can open a dialogue between friends and a potential alcoholic.
"People may arrive at Dependency.net because a friend or family member shared the test with them. It could be out of fun or it could be genuine concern the person may be an alcoholic. For those that have a problem with alcohol, we want them to have that moment of introspection, use the site to learn more about the nature of their addiction, and decide to get help," explains Sara Leal, Communications Director of Dependency.net.
Addicts who admit they have a problem with alcohol dependence/dependency or drug dependence/dependency will also find this website helpful. Dependency.net offers live chat and a toll-free hotline at (877) 653-9087 to discuss possible treatment options. Visitors to the website can also use the site’s contact form to receive confidential information about rehabilitation centers and other detox options.
