Hello Mr. Kurtus,

Good day!

First, let me introduce myself - My name is Mitch, a 1st-year psychology student from Monash University here in Australia. I apologize if I disturb you in any way. I’m just doing an article research about Addiction for our course when I stumble upon your website - https://school-for-champions.com/mentalhealth/resources.htm. Your page was really informative and helpful to me. So, thank you very much!

I saw that you are open to suggestion and I just came across this article too and you might want to incorporate it into your list under Health:
Addiction: Guide to Common Recovery Terms (https://newenglandraw.com/guide-common-recovery-terms/) - The content of this articles will greatly help freshmen to understand addiction-related terms and phrases, common recovery programs and family programs, and treatment-specific terminologies.

Again, thank you very much and hope I was able to help in return for the help that I've got from your website.

Best Regards,

Mitchelle - USA

Hello,

I hope this finds you well. I’m Justin of detoxrehabs.org, an organization connecting people who are seeking treatment to the resources they need. We have a library of educational articles on addiction, recovery, and detoxification, which can benefit residents both in the US and internationally. You can check it below:

http://detoxrehabs.org/drug-rehabs/12-step-rehab-programs/

I came across your site while researching established resources and saw you had a very helpful section here: https://school-for-champions.com/health/resources.htm#Addictions. I thought our resource would be a great addition to your page.

Let me know if we can include this in your list of resources.

Thanks in advance!

Greetings,

I really enjoy your site and all of the mental health resources you offer. I wanted to reach out because I thought my organization would be a great addition. My organization is called Recovery Local, and our website can be found at DetoxLocal.com. We post in-depth engaging content about addiction, drugs, alcohol, recovery, and harm reduction. We also help people find medical detox in their own towns, at no cost. We also do not post paid listings or advertisements. Our mission is simply to offer people a reliable and free resource to learn how to recover from addiction.

Here are some cool pages:

Interactive statistic counter
Interactive "Periodic Table of Drugs".

I hope you find these useful! We would love to offer help to your audience.

Hi there,

while browsing through the addication Resource website, I found the resources section to the both helpful and easy to navigate. As an editor for AlcoholAareness.org,
a drug and addiction information resource, l've seen the benefits to spreading awareness about alcohol abuse and i am glad your website connects readers to this information.

The reason I'm contacting you today is to ask if you can add our site as a link.

Good Morning

I was looking through directories that have information regarding addiction, treatment, and / or substance abuse when I came across your links page. I like that you include descriptions with each link, very thorough.

I'm emailing you because I work for https://detoxtorehab.com as a writer and part of the outreach team. Detox to Rehab is filled with content about individual substances, the effects of their addiction, and the withdrawal symptoms. We also have information with regards to interventions, treatment, therapy, and rehab centers, as well as video blogs interviewing therapists and recovering addicts who wish to share their experiences.

It would be fantastic if you would consider including a link to Detox to Rehab in your resources list for your viewers.

Either way, have a blessed and bright day!

With regards,

Addiction and mental health

Topic: General

Question

December 14, 2015

Greetings from The Prevention Coalition!

At TPC, our collective goal is to empower community members, parents, educators and teenagers with the facts on drug use and abuse. We are working to identify authoritative resources on every aspect of substance abuse, ranging from prevention to addiction treatment.

According to the CDC, excessive alcohol use led to approximately 88,000 deaths and 2.5 million years of potential life lost *each year* in the United States from 2006 – 2010 (1). Statistics like these make our jobs at TPC, an online information hub, that much more important.

I hope you’ll review the following addiction resources we gathered and that you’ll consider adding them to your site.

Question

Hello there!

Did you know that there are almost 350 million people worldwide who suffer from depression (1)? Men, women and even children can fall victim to this mental health issue. What’s worse is that depression can lead to other devastating diseases including alcoholism, obesity and insomnia (2).

Depression isn’t something we can simply ignore – some of the people that we talk to every day may very well be battling this disease! To help spread awareness, I decided to create this list of resources, which offer advice that may be beneficial in treating this disease in addition to a professional healthcare regimen. Would you be so kind as to share these with your audience (perhaps you can include them here: http://www.school-for-champions.com/mentalhealth/resources.htm?)? Those who are struggling with depression need all of the support they can get. Additionally, I would be honored to write a research based article for your site on this subject free of charge.

Question

August 12, 2015

Hi!

I recently learned that ADHD has a much bigger impact on our society than I ever realized. I’m not surprised that over 6 percent of children are currently being treated for the cognitive disorder (1), because many of my friends have children with ADHD. But I had no idea that there are about 5 percent of adults (2) living with this condition as well!

While ADHD often presents challenges to those living with the disorder in many facets of life, there are more resources than ever that present valuable insight and information on the condition. That’s why my team and I decided to put together a list that covers a range of topics on which people often have questions. We thought your audience (perhaps here: http://www.school-for-champions.com/health/hyperactivity.htm?) would also find this information useful, so please do pass it along. Additionally, I’d love to put together a research-based article for your site visitors, if you’re interested – no charge, as this is truly a labor of love!
