  • Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL (1888PressRelease) November 12, 2019 - In the hope of helping thousands of Americans who are suffering from drug and alcohol abuse, especially in the face of the nation’s current opioid epidemic, The White House Administration has developed and released FindTreatment.gov. This website is user friendly, allowing people who need help to find treatment near them and search the site based on the type of treatment they need or the payment option they prefer. 70,000 Americans died from drug overdoses in 2017, the majority of which were opioid related. The White House has high hopes that this new website will help more people find treatment before it’s too late.

    Giving Everyone Access to Indiscriminate Treatment
    “’We know that the drug crisis is indiscriminate, so we want the response to be indiscriminate,’Kellyanne Conway, President Trump’s counselor and the leader of the drug crisis response, said.The website was built in-house by government coders and is managed by the White House. The administration is calling FindTreatment.gov an example of ‘American-First design’ that offers easy access to information without breaking the federal budget.” It also allows users to choose between options that focus on youth, veterans and LGBT Americans.

    Conway explains the White House’s efforts to make the site easy to understand and available to anyone who wishes to use it. "’We designed it with human-centered principles in mind,’ Conway said. ‘We used real words for real people.’ The effort included employing a language expert for help with providing ‘destigmatizing’ explanations for treatment options to make them more acceptable to those in need.The site's design was informed by more than 300 user feedback responses and 60 detailed interviews with those who have sought treatment, their family members and providers, the White House said.”

    What the Future Holds
    Government and law enforcement entities alike agree that this website and other efforts by the White House to solve the drug crisis will help decrease crime rates and drug related death rates across America. It’s worth the billions of dollars from Congress going into treatment to give more Americans access to effective care facilities. Future plans involve integrating “the site with the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide more targeted resources to the community of former service members.”United Recovery Project, a luxury drug and alcohol rehab center that offers a variety of evidence-based programs, is excited to be more available to people struggling nationwide through this new government website.
