A recent article in the New York Times highlighted many of the increased challenges the United States has faced during the Covid-19 pandemic. Titled ‘Relapsing Left and Right’: Trying to Overcome Addiction in a Pandemic, the article focuses on how substance-abuse centers are shutting and relying on virtual programming, just as more and more people turn to drugs and alcohol.

“Several studies have shown that binge drinking has increased during the pandemic, and a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cited a “concerning acceleration” of opioid-related overdoses last year.”

Dr. Estes reflected, “While we’ve seen a rise in substance abuse because of isolation issues, relationship challenges, and financial stress, many treatment centers have closed down or are limiting in-person visits.”

“That’s why we decided to create this valuable index of resources, so people could quickly and easily find certified and quality support,” Estes said. “All within a few clicks.”
