HERO - Heroin Epidemic Relief Organization


HERO's mission is all about prevention, intervention, and support. We understand that we can't help everyone on our own. That's why we've gone to great lengths to seek out various professionals in the areas of psychology, medicine, addiction, and more. We gather those resources here so you can get the help you need without having to search far and wide.

The professionals we list have been rigorously vetted and have shown to be competent and extremely helpful. We take credentials, reputation, and recommendations based on personal experiences into account. We never list anyone for profit and will not accept donations in exchange for a listing. We'd be more than happy, however, to take any recommendations you have into consideration and list them here once we've done the proper research.

If you would like to recommend a treatment provider not listed here feel free to contact us via email on our contact page.
