“Choose Help”: New Website To Aid Addicts
A website that offers help to those suffering with drug and alcohol addiction picked Independence Day to launch its new addiction service.
Called ChooseHelp.com, the site offers all sorts of help for people who really need it.
“We give people a place where they can easily access local assistance, ask questions to qualified mental health professionals and browse through a comprehensive resource section,” said site founder Martin Schoel. “People need a safe place to explore their issues and to learn more about treatment options; hopefully so they can get inspired into positive action before an addiction runs its inevitable full course of destruction.”
According to PRWeb, Schoel was inspired to create the site by the death of his brother, who was killed in an “alcohol-induced accident” in 1997.
“Had there been an Internet service back then providing guidance on suitable treatment from the anonymity of home he would have felt more comfortable seeking the help he needed – and would probably still be alive today.”
Choose Help has been providing comprehensive mental health services since 2007. The addiction portal is new.
“Over the last few years we’ve had literally thousands of phone calls and emails from people hungering for change and ready to get some form of treatment, but just not quite sure what they needed or how they could possibly get it,” site editor John Lee said. “The developments being released on the web site today are designed to really help people get the accurate info they need in a more personalized way – and right away.”
“Web sites such as ours are the modern versions of traditional crisis centers that offer help around the clock in times of need and despair,” Schoel said.
