Detox.net is developed and maintained by Recovery Brands, LLC, a subsidiary of American Addiction Centers, Inc. (“AAC”). AAC is a leading provider of both residential and outpatient addiction treatment services. For more information about Detox.net’s affiliation with AAC, please see below under “How Our Helpline Works.”
Detox.net aims to provide the best information to help visitors understand, find, and finance detox. We offer informative and authoritative content that explores the detox process for every individual substance. We also provide demographic-specific detox information. Detox.net does not allow platform users to comment or collaborate on any of its website pages. As such, there is no need for platform users to provide source information for health or medical information.
Detox.net is an American Addiction Centers resource that provides educational content about alcohol and substance use disorders, as well as a directory of addiction treatment facilities across the United States. Funding for our site is generated in two ways:
We do not allow featured businesses or insurance providers to influence or write editorial content on our site. No funding is generated from paid treatment- or insurance-provided editorial content.
Detox.net does not accept advertising from any company, brand, product (or any entity) unrelated to addiction treatment. We do not allow featured businesses or insurance providers (or any entity) to influence or write editorial content on our site. Our editorial content is not influenced by the funding sources.
Detox.net’s advertisements are clearly marked with an “Ad” or “Advertisement” logo indicator. Advertisements appear only on State and City directory listing pages in the form of banner or tile placements. Advertisements are not placed on any editorial content.
For those seeking addiction treatment for themselves or a loved one, the Detox.net helpline is a private and convenient solution. We are standing by 24/7 to discuss your treatment options. Our advisors work solely for AAC and will discuss with you whether an AAC facility may be an option for you. To view a list of residential treatment centers operated by AAC, visit americanaddictioncenters.org/treatment-centers.
If AAC cannot provide a treatment option that meets your needs, we may suggest that you search for a non-AAC treatment facility. Our helpline is offered at no cost to you and with no obligation to enter into treatment. Neither Detox.net nor AAC receives any commission or other fee that is dependent upon which treatment provider a visitor may ultimately choose. You can connect with hundreds of other facilities by browsing our listings and calling them directly, or by visiting SAMHSA.gov.
When you use the free chat feature, you will reach an automated assistant representing AAC who will help you navigate your treatment options privately and discreetly. The automated assistant will ask you questions and provide you with basic information to help you start your journey to recovery. If you would like to speak with an AAC representative directly, a phone number is available in the chat window. When you call this phone number, you will reach AAC employees who work solely for AAC and will discuss with you the treatment options available from AAC.
Our chat service is offered at no cost to you and with no obligation to enter into treatment. Neither Detox.net nor AAC receives any commission or other fee that is dependent upon which treatment provider a visitor may ultimately choose.
All chat users are invited to opt in to receive additional communications from AAC. Opting into these communications is entirely voluntary and you may opt out from receiving messages from AAC at any time. Chat users can select their preferred method of contact. Standard messaging and data rates may apply for those who opt in for SMS.
By entering your insurance information into our free verification of benefits tool, AAC will attempt to verify your health insurance benefits and/or necessary authorizations on your behalf to determine if your insurance benefits may be accepted by an American Addiction Centers facility. Please note, AAC only provides a quote of benefits and/or authorizations. We cannot guarantee payment or verification eligibility as conveyed by your health insurance provider will be accurate and complete, and we cannot verify or guarantee coverage and/or eligibility for treatment services rendered at non-AAC treatment centers. Payment of benefits are subject to all terms, conditions, limitations, and exclusions of the member’s contract at time of service.
Your health insurance company will only pay for services that it determines to be “reasonable and necessary.” AAC will make every effort to have all services preauthorized by your health insurance company. If your health insurance company determines that a particular service is not reasonable and necessary, or that a particular service is not covered under your plan, your insurer will deny payment for that service and it will become your responsibility. For more information about the terms and conditions of your individual plan, please contact your health insurance provider.
The content provided on Detox.net features valuable information to help you and your loved ones determine your needs when it comes to seeking treatment for drug or alcohol abuse. We strive to provide accurate and up-to-date information available in the field of addiction medicine and behavioral health, and have enlisted an acclaimed team of authors, treatment professionals, and editorial experts to write, review, and update content to check that it meets our high editorial standards. Some of our reviewers include:

We commit to high ethical standards, in the interest of being as helpful as possible to those seeking treatment. We aim to make our site as transparent as possible by marking ads to distinguish them from editorial content, disclosing our sponsors, as well as AAC’s relationship with our website and our helpline. We take steps to ensure our advertisers are licensed, similar to the criteria used by the federally run Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) provider directory at SAMHSA.gov.
Our content is impartial and unbiased. We do not endorse or subscribe to any particular recovery method, and we believe that the personal decision to seek treatment is one that should be done autonomously and with the support of all possible information.
We hold ourselves to the highest level of financial integrity, and we do not sell or broker admissions, or engage in unethical “consultant contracts.” If you encounter any marketing practices based on calls made to centers or helplines listed on this site that you feel are deceptive, unethical, or misleading, contact us and we will do our best to correct the situation and help you find a trustworthy provider.
The process of finding a treatment provider can feel overwhelming. Resources, like facility websites or Detox.net and the following guide, can help you determine which options are best for you or your loved one.
