Advanced Recovery Resources Offers Help Through

drsnetPRESS RELEASE – Kennesaw, GA, July 13, 2016 (reprinted from – As with many other parts of the healthcare industry, there have been a series of changes in the drug and alcohol rehabilitation field. Two of the most notable recently have been new laws regarding insurance coverage for addiction treatment and also the consolidation of many facilities into larger companies.

There are several treatment conglomerates that are not only acquiring more facilities, but also more real estate online as well. In fact, many of the top sites geared toward helping people locate rehab programs are either owned by or have exclusive agreements with a group of centers. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it does make it harder to find independent help if that’s what you’re looking for.

An emerging company is now taking steps to help with this situation. With its acquisition and redevelopment of and other online properties, Advanced Recovery Resources is working to fill the gap that other larger independents occupied in the past.

“While we work with multiple programs throughout the country of all sizes, we are still a fully independent operation looking to help as many people and facilities as possible,” says Lucas Catton, CEO of Advanced Recovery Resources. “We are happy to see our growth in both online development as well as rehab center relationships for the betterment of all involved.”

While all basic listings in the treatment directory are free for each center, Advanced Recovery Resources has just recently started offering premium listings on for only $100 per month for the first year. With steady traffic increases over the past 12 months, this allows facilities with even the smallest budgets to be able to promote their program in a very affordable manner and enhance their overall visibility. Locking in the introductory rate is the key to capitalizing on this growth.

In addition to offering these premium listings on, Advanced Recovery Resources works with centers on their marketing and promotion plans through consulting and web development. The company also help individuals and families with locating treatment options and intervention resources.

Even Non-Profits Have to Earn Money

non-profitsPeople often have the misconception that because a program is non-profit that means they shouldn’t charge for their services. We wanted to take a moment to address some of the issues surrounding such an idea.

For starters, the staff have to earn a living. Sure, some non-profit charities are staffed almost entirely by volunteers, but that is not the case with drug and alcohol treatment programs. Most people want them to be staffed by professionals who will be doing their best to help them recover from addiction. These professionals have to eat and have families to support and bills to pay just like the rest of us. Therefore, even non-profit treatment centers must make money.

Now, this doesn’t have to mean they charge outrageous amounts. They typically stick to low rates for the services they provide and sometimes even get donations, grants or other funding from outside sources and to be able to offset the cost of rehabilitation even more through discounts or scholarships.

The reality is that even non-profits have to make money, and the better job they do at filling their beds the more people they can help.

They also have to make money to pay for supplies, pay their rent or mortgage and utilities, etc. The power companies don’t care what kind of business they are, they still want their money.

We certainly don’t want it to sound like we’re all about the money. If that were the case we wouldn’t be in this field at all. Someone can’t work in the addiction treatment field for years and not have at least some altruistic base in them to keep going. These are important jobs and the people who help save lives should be rewarded for their efforts, whether they work at a for-profit facility or a private, non-profit center.
