Help.org Addiction Resources

The Help.org organization is working to benefit communities throughout New York. A group of medical professionals have had conversations with addiction experts across the US, and based on this; the vast majority of people who need treatment for substance abuse disorders do not seek it. Though there are many barriers that discourage people from getting the help they need, cost is a significant factor. So we created a guide that provides comprehensive information on topics like, available care options, financial support, and free resources that are available in New York.
