1. We do not pay or receive payment for inbound our outbound referrals. We do not exchange money or favors with interventionists, detox facilities, rehabs, treatment facilities, sober living, “rehab review” aggregator websites, or any other providers. All referrals are based solely on reputation, social media advertising, word of mouth, and from the clients themselves. 

2. We do not make lofty promises of an easy cure or a permanent recovery. We advocate recovery through participation and engagement in evidence-based recovery methods such as inpatient programs, outpatient programs, twelve step groups or other recovery fellowships such as SMART recovery, and medical or mental health assistance.
