Content identified by the HONcode team

The content below is a sample of the content identified at a specific date by the HONcode team that justifies the respect of the eight ethical principles.

All content included on Rehab Spot is created by our team of researchers and journalists. Topics are selected after consulting with recovering addicts, treatment professionals, and leading addiction resources to determine what information is most valuable to those seeking help for themselves or a loved one. All of our articles are fact-based and sourced from relevant publications, government agencies, and medical journals.
Rehab Spot proudly works with counselors, therapists, advocates, bloggers, and contributors who have studied addiction, are in recovery themselves, or who have had their lives impacted by substance abuse in some way. We try to include the broadest possible set of perspectives on addiction, provide the most accurate and up-to-date information, and to reach the widest possible audience.
