Addiction Resource and Substance Use & Domestic Violence Information
Addiction Resource Guides, Information & Hotline – Our Purpose and Mission
Addiction Resource was founded in 2014 to provide a community for those recovering from addiction and to help patients find the highest quality care for a successful recovery. Our goal is to provide resources to help patients and their loved ones so that they may stay on the road to recovery, and can successfully overcome addiction for life. We believe in our ability to help improve the lives of others, and belief is what motivates us to educate and support our readers every day
Addiction Resource is not a treatment center and does not accept payments or advertising offers. Instead, we work to provide free resources to help people better understand their addiction and motivate them to make the first step in seeking support.
Addiction Resource works with licensed medical professionals and health writers to provide you with the most up to date information on addiction treatment. In our effort to provide you with the most effective, research-based content, we work with academic researchers at local universities to curate and publish our articles. While we strive to provide you with the best medical content in the addiction field, our content is not intended to replace the advice of your medical professional.

Additionally, approximately 20 percent of abusive males admit to consuming some type of drug and/or alcoholic beverage before acting aggressively toward their partners.
