Lots of information
This website is rapidly becoming the best source in the U.S. for up-to-date curated information on mental health and substance use information — the arena of knowledge that is often referred to as “behavioral health.”
Each day, an enormous quantity of information becomes available in journal articles, news reports, media releases from treatment and advocacy groups, policy statements from governments and other funders, etc.
The National Treatment Access Project works to sort out the most reliable, most useful bits of this data avalanche so that you can easily find what you need.
Check out these features:
News — The latest new information for people in need of services, and people who are offering or funding services.
Ideas — Innovations and new thought about issues related to treatment and support.
Facts — Key references for people who are trying to learn about this often obtuse field.
There is also a national directory of programs here. You won’t find every program in this directory; only the most active, effective, and legitimate programs from around the country can get listed here.
These are the treatment providers who best understand that lack of access to care is the biggest failure of the U.S. healthcare system, and that access begins only when treatment providers work hard to be sure that people in need can find them.
