SAMHSA Launches New Substance Abuse Treatment Locator Website

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has launched, a new website that helps people find and learn about treating substance abuse disorders. Launched on October 30, 2019, the website is an update to SAMHSA’s previous treatment directory and is intended to make finding treatment more user friendly, according to MM&M. Compiled data from 13,000 treatment facilities across the US is available on the new website.

“When someone opens up about their struggles with addiction, it’s critical they and their loved ones have the right resources to quickly find help, and that’s exactly what this treatment locator aims to provide. Every situation is unique, and the Trump Administration continues to support people who seek substance use treatment on their journey to recovery,” said Jim Carroll, director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy in a statement.
