About Addiction Center

Since 2014, Addiction Center has been an informational web guide for those who are struggling with substance use disorders and co-occurring behavioral and mental health disorders. Addiction Center is owned by Recovery Worldwide, a national informational marketing umbrella for several addiction recovery-related properties. Addiction Center works with nationally recognized treatment facilities to provide treatment counseling, rehab placement and insurance/financial consultations for those seeking help.

All content included on Addiction Center is created by our team of researchers and journalists. The topics are chosen based on informational interviews with recovering addicts and treatment professionals to provide the most valuable information for our audience. All of our articles are fact-based and sourced from relevant publications, government agencies and medical journals.

Mission & Goal

Striving to provide our audiences with quality information and assistance in their struggle with addiction is our primary goal at Addiction Center. We’re focused on keeping the wellbeing of the people visiting our site at the forefront of any work we do. Our ultimate mission is to ensure people looking for help have the tools and information to find it.

How We Are Different

Unlike many sites operating in this space, Addiction Center is not integrated with any one treatment center or chain of treatment centers. This gives us unique flexibility in providing access to centers across the U.S. rather than in one location. Since we started Addiction Center in 2014, we have over 7 years of development and that time has allowed us to grow our web presence and organic search performance. We focus on providing thoroughly researched and high-quality information and we work to make sure our content is easy to find and accessible.

Our Promises And Commitments

We’re committed to providing information that’s not only accurate, but sensitive to the stigma people struggling with substance use disorders experience. We want to ensure that people feel comfortable and welcomed on our site and aren’t made to feel blamed for their experiences. Our team works hard to ensure site users have access to detailed information on treatment centers, as well as information on addiction and recovery topics, so they can be prepared for their recovery journey.

Our Editorial Team

In order to provide information up to our standards, we have our own in-house team of writers. They research pertinent topics from trustworthy sources to create our content and work towards spreading awareness about these issues to our relevant partners. The social stigma can often turn people away from asking for help with their addiction, and our writers keep that in mind when producing sensitive and informative content. Their goal is to help people take the path forward that’s best for their health and happiness.
