We are proud to announce the public release of an unprecedented resource for those seeking help and support for addiction anywhere in the United States. Until now, this information has been highly fragmented, difficult to verify, and overwhelming to process – especially when trying to make immediate choices about health and well-being.
Last year, Facing Addiction with NCADD and Transforming Youth Recovery collaborated along with Viacom and the Ad Council to launch a beta version of a powerful new tool – The Addiction Resource Hub – which is now widely available.
This valuable resource already has over 40,000 assets independently mapped and organized in a robust user-friendly application. This free tool provides individuals, families, and professionals vital information customized to fit their unique needs. This includes resources specific to prevention, early intervention, treatment, and recovery support efforts in communities across the country.
The Capacitype technology allows for people to “Map It,” giving those with knowledge of helpful supports for addiction in their community the ability to share with others what they find helpful and useful.
Please share this groundbreaking new tool at resources.facingaddiction.org to:
- Find resources in your area
- Create and share resource collections
- Map resources in your community
- Build local capacity for access to addiction services
