At Addiction Recovery Now we believe having accessible knowledge to all things addiction and recovery related will help you make the right decision regarding treatment the first time. Our recovery resources were hand chosen to give you the cream of the crop when it comes to staying abreast of trending treatment innovations, educational tools, and resources to understand the underlying causes of addiction. Through careful study of all programs available, you’ll be able to have an informed discussion with your recovery professional, giving you the freedom to ask important questions as to the validity of specific treatment modalities.

Our recovery resources are compiled with you in mind, and will continue to grow everyday! Whether it’s a story of triumph and recovery, or a link to breaking studies concerning developments in addiction, we have you covered. Check back often for new listings on the best books about addiction, and the things you need to know about going into rehab for the first, or third, time.

Check out the Glossary of addictive substances to learn about addictive substances, their effects on the body and mind, withdrawal symptoms, and treatment methods. If you want first-hand accounts of what the disease of addiction looks like, consult our recovery resource documentaries to illuminate the dark corners of addiction, and celebrate the joys of recovery.
