Recovery Connection
888-616-0364 24-hour helpline

Referrals for rehab. This group appears to us to be legitimate, but we know less about it than about most groups we list. Further information would be welcome. In particular, while it is clear that they provide referrals only to legitimate rehab programs, we are not sure of their business model (e.g. whether they are being paid by rehab facilities for referrals).
