The problem of addiction has risen dramatically in recent years in the United States. In October of 2013 it was stated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human services that around 20.4 million people were involved in illicit drug use over the past 30 days. The 2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health shows an average increase of 10% in drug and alcohol abuse across all ages and addiction types. Addictions to drugs or alcohol was stable from 2002 until 2006 according to NSDUH but has since showed an increase, rising since then to the present day.

Treatment Center Finder is looking to get a head start in fighting these illnesses spreading across the country. With 12 states now covered under their addiction helpline, they are soon looking to spread their reach to the entire United States. CEO, Corey Shader, has said, “We have plans to expand to every state and are going to get there fast. The amount of treatment centers under our programs is growing each month and we are helping thousands to overcome addiction each year.”
