Addiction Center

Since 2014, Addiction Center has been an informational web guide for those who are struggling with substance use disorders and co-occurring behavioral and mental health disorders. Addiction Center is owned by Recovery Worldwide, a national informational marketing umbrella for several addiction recovery-related properties. Addiction Center works with nationally recognized treatment facilities to provide treatment counseling, rehab placement and insurance/financial consultations for those seeking help.

All content included on Addiction Center is created by our team of researchers and journalists.

Alcohol Rehab Guide

Alcohol Rehab Guide (ARG) is an organization that provides comprehensive, reliable information on the various aspects of alcohol abuse and addiction. We offer support and guidance for those who are struggling, as well as their parents, family members, friends, health workers and community members.

ARG is owned and funded by Recovery Worldwide, LLC, an organization that delivers web-based information on health and mental health-related topics. While we are not a treatment facility, we work with a wide range of healthcare professionals and recovery programs.

ARG is dedicated to helping people overcome alcoholism and achieve long-term sobriety. Our team is made up of individuals who have personal experience with alcohol addiction, and understand the importance of delivering top-notch resources and information. That was our inspiration. ARG aims to educate people on the dangers of alcohol addiction and guide them or their loved one into a treatment program.

The ARG team strives to raise awareness about those most susceptible to alcohol abuse: adolescents, college students, adults, individuals with mental health disorders and veterans. Roughly 240 million people around the globe are dependent on alcohol. Our goal is to help reduce the number of individuals affected by the dangers of alcohol abuse.


Alo House Recovery Centers

Traditionally, the drug and alcohol treatment industry is based on a ‘compliance’ model, and is often administered with a punitive, coercive spirit. The goal is often nothing more than ‘forced abstinence’. At Alo House, we take an entirely different approach. Our rehabilitation philosophy is based on providing non-judgmental, loving support for our clients. The close-knit, community-based approach that we use aims to empower our clients, and provide them with a sense of comfort and belonging. And we do this in a less restrictive, freer environment. As the author Alfie Kohn shows us, “People will typically be more enthusiastic where they feel a sense of belonging and see themselves as part of a community than they will in a [place] in which each person is left to his own devices.” Ours is a therapeutic, healing community in which we practice a Compassionate Care Model of Treatment.

Our philosophy has to be translated into principles. These principles are how we act with our clients on a daily basis. Staff and clients, alike — the entire community of Alo House — are on a healing journey together, and we hold ourselves to the same principles that we teach our clients to exemplify. This is called the Parallel Process. We believe in ‘connection instead of control’, that we are literally all in this together. It is with this spirit that we inspire and nurture our clients to change their own lives. As the renowned psychotherapist Carl Rogers taught us with his ‘Client Centered Therapy’, “the individual has within himself or herself vast resources for self-understanding, for altering his or her self-concept, attitudes and self-directed behavior — and that these resources can be tapped if only a definable climate of facilitative psychological attitudes can be provided.” He called this attitude ‘Unconditional Positive Regard’.


Drug Rehab is a web resource provided and funded by Advanced Recovery Systems (ARS). ARS is an integrated behavioral health care management organization dedicated to the treatment of addiction, substance abuse, eating disorders and mental health issues. We provide well-researched, fact-based resources on this site.

Our mission is…to equip people and their families with the best information, resources and tools to overcome addiction and lead a lifelong recovery.

How Addiction Affects the Brain: The Neuroscience of Compulsive Behavior

When scientists first began studying addiction in the 1930s, it was widely accepted that people who were addicted to drugs or alcohol were morally flawed and simply lacked willpower. This led to a widespread view in society that addiction was a moral failing, rather than the brain disease it’s known to be today.

Incredible discoveries through scientific research have led to a much better understanding of addiction. As it turns out, addiction is the result of real and tangible changes in brain function that affect thought and behavior, and it’s regarded by the medical community as a disease that can be systematically diagnosed and successfully treated.

Unfortunately, few people among the general population understand why and how addiction develops and how treatment works to end an addiction for the long-term. The stigma of addiction as a moral failing persists in many circles, making things more difficult for people who are addicted to drugs or alcohol.

In this eBook, we [Silver Ridge Recovery] aim to help you understand the complex ways in which drug and alcohol abuse affect brain function and how these changes may lead to a compulsion to use drugs. Once you understand how addiction’s compulsive behaviors develop, it’s easier to see how treatment can help an individual successfully end even the most severe, long-term drug or alcohol addiction.
