Finding alcohol treatment for a college student can often involve the staff at a campus health center, especially if the student in need of treatment is attending a school far from home. When this happens, Treatment-Centers.net provides the resources health center staff need to quickly connect the student and his family with an alcohol treatment center near the school. The online directory proves comprehensive in all areas of the country, ensuring that all students have access to the help they need to get sober and stay that way.
February 2011 – Created by Internet marketing expert Bernie Gohsman, Treatment-Centers.net features more than 11,000 addiction and alcohol rehabilitation center listings, plus a wealth of addiction-related resources. Gohsman launched the directory after his only brother died as the result of a drug and alcohol addiction. The goal of the directory is to help health professionals and families find the resources they need to help an alcoholic and thus avoid experiencing this painful loss.
Health professionals and families begin at the homepage of Treatment-Centers.net, where they will find links to state categories. There are even links to international categories, for those helping to find an alcohol treatment center for a student attending school abroad. Those helping the student also can call the directory (877) 335-4673 and speak to a treatment counselor immediately. Counselors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and can help narrow the many options down to one. There is no charge to access the directory or to speak with a treatment counselor.
Campus health centers also can use Treatment-Centers.net as part of awareness campaigns for alcoholism and alcohol treatment. Health center staff can educate students about the directory and its free resources through pamphlets and e-mail newsletters. This can encourage students in need of an alcohol rehabilitation center, but who might not be ready to take the next step yet, to explore the directory on their own.
On the directory, students will find extensive resources, including online assessments and a robust community area. In the community area, the student can communicate with others who struggle with alcoholism through forums and in chat rooms. Treatment-Centers.net also has a frequently updated blog with news and words of wisdom and inspiration relating to alcoholism and alcohol treatment.
In addition to alcohol treatment center listings, the directory includes listings for other types of addiction treatment centers. Health center staff and families can turn to Treatment-Centers.net and its counselors for help finding centers and professionals– therapists and addiction-recovery organizations – that provide treatment for alcoholism, eating disorders and sex, Internet and gambling addiction.
