  • We DO NOT link to resources funded and/or hosted by Treatment Providers out of respect for neutrality in the decision process of selecting a treatment provider.

  • We DO NOT endorse methods of treatment outside of those scientifically shown to work at an increased rate across human demographics.
  • We DO NOT accept funding in exchange for linkage on our  Resources page, particularly in the Harm Reduction Products section.
