Northbound Treatment’s mission is to provide the information and resources to help readers struggling with substance abuse overcome the disease that is addiction. Throughout our website, resources, and FAQs, we provide information that is intended to educate you and/or a loved one on the dangers of addiction as well as the benefits of seeking professional help to achieve life-long sobriety. 

We are committed to providing high-quality, evidence-based resources that are accurate, trustworthy, relevant, and focused on physical and mental well-being. Our team of contributors uses the most up-to-date clinical research and resources in addiction medicine to produce our content. 

The information on Northbound Treatment is not intended to diagnose, heal, or replace the help of professional health care. Rather, our message is aimed toward helping those struggling with addiction to take the first step toward recovery.
