Addiction Treatment "Professionals"

To our site users: we have been getting a fair amount of stealth advertising from commercial addiction treatment services. Please ignore them.

If you think you may have a problem with alcohol or other drugs, you can find a list of resources from the AMA here. There are also resource pages from the Internet Public Library here and here.

Dishonest marketers post comments to questions and answers pages that have no relation to drug use, with some innocuous text and a link to a commercial treatment provider. This does a disservice both to those who come to this site for answers, and for those who think they may have a problem with addiction.

Our site moderation is set up in such a way that these spammers' content is usually quickly removed. But please know that our site does NOT endorse any referrals that may be made in user comments, and would discourage anyone from clicking through to any links that seem out of place. I, speaking only for myself, just want that on the record.
