Experts Since 2007

Interventionamerica.org has published information on treatment centers and services of licensed providers since in 2007 based on data from SAMHSA which is an abbreviation for Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. SAMHSA is the expert clearinghouse for licensing and accreditation for the entire United States concerning substance abuse, mental health and treatment related services. Intervention America has made the SAMSHA data easy and simple to locate on the internet. Over the past 11 years other recovery related services have also requested to be included on our website. We use the industry standard criteria to determine which facilities are published on interventionamerica.org. This means that any treatment center, sober living or recovery related service is verified by phone, address and public data before being published. By doing so we are able to provide highly accurate data to our website users for their unique situations.

Our Expert Contributors

In addition to SAMSHA we have also collaborated with a wide variety of experts in the field of substance abuse treatment. These experts are PhDs, MDs, LCSWs, MFTs, drug counselors, case workers and interventionists. We have developed many great relationships and have attended many conferences, consortiums and private board meetings. Working closely with these professions for the last 11 years has given us a level of expertise in the field of substance abuse, mental health, interventions, intake process, aftercare as well as education and long-term recovery. Due to our deep understanding of the services available throughout the United States many organizations including Universities, Colleges, Trade Schools, States and Cities have linked to published information from interventionamerica.org.

We understand that recovery does not end when someone has completed a detox or a short-term treatment program. Continued support in a sober environment has proven vital to long term recovery which is why we have expanded upon our data beyond what SAMHSA provides.

Expert Quality Control

We are constantly adding new listings and updating published information to better serve the visitors of our website daily. Treatment and recovery centers contact us to update the information we provide on their business. Our dedicated team works around the clock to make sure that we have the most relevant and valid information for families searching on the internet for a place of recovery. Our continued diligence is why we are a trustworthy source for Universities, Colleges, Trade Schools, States and Cities.
