Jim Davis, CAS, CEO and founder of Recovery First, writes prolifically for the treatment center.
"We've published more than 500 articles on the web, offering information and help to anyone who needs it. However, it's a little harder today to reach people struggling with addiction who aren't regular internet users. We want to be able to reach these people with our message as well, because we believe that our passion and dedication here can save lives."
Indeed, a quick search of the web returns countless results of articles the drug rehab center has published on topics ranging from Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome to how addiction affects sex. Most of the articles are published on self-help, inspirational, health and fitness related websites and are available for public use at no charge.
However, some people in the industry question how effective an offline effort could be, citing the idea that most drug addicts aren't likely to be reading magazines in their free time.
But Jim Davis isn't concerned about this at all. And he would know – as a recovering addict clean for over 3 decades, Davis has an intense personal and professional understanding of addiction and alcoholism.
"It doesn't matter whether the addict ever reads the article. It could be their parent, spouse, sibling, friend or associate who reads it and feels compelled to take the next step. At the end of the day, if all of our work online and offline only helps one person, then we've done our job."
