Addiction Resources and Statistics

150+ Addiction Resources and Statistics from around the World

Over 600,000 people worldwide die each year from overdose. Yet studies show that substance abuse treatment with aftercare programs reduce rates of relapse and improve social and emotional well-being.

Picking the right treatment center is a crucial step to a successful recovery. Different programs treat different addictions and offer different types of care, such as inpatient and outpatient recovery, detox, and telehealth. While most providers have their clients’ best interest in mind, people suffering from dependence are vulnerable to being exploited and may need help finding a quality facility.

To help, I’ve compiled a list of over 176 centers across the globe that are specialized in battling various forms of addiction. In the conclusion, I’ve included some relevant statistics that highlight the urgency of the issue and dispel some myths about common addictions.

Drug and Alcohol Addiction Support Groups

Support groups for all types of addictions allow people to join together with others who share similar experiences, backgrounds, and struggles. Drug and alcohol substance use groups are helpful whether you are interested in a support group as a first step in your journey to recovery from a drug or alcohol addiction or if you want to participate in a group to remain sober and help newer members.
