New locator tool for substance abuse treatment
Millions of Americans have a substance use disorder.
Help is available.
The Department of Health and Human Services launched FindTreatment.gov, a new website designed to help Americans looking for substance abuse treatment locate services near them.
Visitors to FindTreatment.Gov can access information on treatment options, payment and insurance, and the locations of over 13,000 state-licensed treatment facilities across the United States.
Addiction demands treatment, not judgment. And finding access to the right provider at the right time can be essential to helping someone start on the road to recovery. That’s why better access to treatment, prevention and recovery services is one of the five pillars of the HHS strategy to end the opioid crisis.
Over 19.3 million American adults suffered with substance use disorder in 2018. Now, thanks to FindTreatment.gov, more Americans will have easier ways to the find the treatment that they or loved ones might need.
