White House launches website to help those battling substance abuse
A new website to help Americans with substance abuse problems find treatment was activated Wednesday by the Trump administration.
By adding user-friendly search criteria and tools, the site modernizes a directory of 13,000 licensed treatment providers maintained by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
For example, a search can be done based on the type of treatment (inpatient, detox, or telemedicine), by payment option, and whether the treatment is medication-assisted, the AP reported. There are also options for specific groups, such as youth, veterans, and the LGBT community.
