Who We Are
We exist to make the first step in a family’s path to recovery the right step through knowledgeable, unbiased, and helpful information while continuing to provide relevant resources throughout their entire recovery journey.
Independent & Unbiased
We do not own nor are operated by a treatment center. We strive to remain objective and only present facts about providers, treatment approaches, and so on.
Our guiding principle is to put the patient first. We never put the needs of sponsors over the goal of helping every person that comes to the site. Here are some ways our sites may stand apart from others:
- We don’t charge for listings. Often listing sites will purposefully hide information on free listings, like the phone number or website in order to try to coax more providers into paying for sponsorships. This hurts the patient’s experience and we don’t believe in delegitimizing providers that don’t or can’t pay. All of the offerings we provide to sponsors are in addition to the good quality, baseline listing we give to any provider. (Think Yelp or TripAdvisor)
- The only phone numbers on center pages are for the actual center. Often, treatment directories build a business on pushing people to call their call center. Sometimes, the call center phone number is shown in such a way that a consumer thinks they are calling a treatment center’s direct line, but in fact they are calling a call center who may try to funnel this person to a particular center. We avoid this altogether, by only listing the actual provider’s number on the page.
- We do not take referral fees of any kind from providers. We also don’t sell leads.
- There is no hotline. We don’t aggregate our visitors information or sell calls or leads in any way. 100% of our listings and advertising is branded by the treatment center, so patients are always talking directly to a vetted provider, never a middle man.
Compassion is treating others with love, respect, kindness, and understanding. Each person has value, so we have compassion for the people we serve, extending empathy and standing with them in their struggle. We also have compassion for each other. Compassion compels us to act.
Vulnerability means having the courage to share, to ask for help, or even to point out an issue. When we’re transparent and honest, it allows for deeper, more meaningful connection. Vulnerability includes providing safety through listening well, accepting that we all have struggles, and assuming the best in others.
Growth comes from continuous learning, both individually and collectively. We embrace Kaizen, a Japanese term that translates to “change is good” and refers to continuous improvement. We have a growth mindset, focused on expanding our skills and ability to help others.
Joy comes from the inside. We delight in our work, have fun, and are passionate about what we do. We find joy for each other and in each other’s accomplishments. By practicing gratitude, we cultivate joy.
Accountability means our actions matter. We take the initiative and do what it takes to move our tasks forward with diligence and excellence. We accept that others will, with compassion, hold us responsible for results.
Creativity is all about constantly problem-solving. Creativity allows for open-ended and unconventional innovation. We actively welcome new ideas and recognize collaboration and flexibility are key to creativity.
