Common Questions

We know how sensitive recovery can be due to the stigma. If you do choose to make an account on Addicaid, the only necessary information is a username, email, and password. We do not use any third party authentication such as facebook or twitter. All your information is securely encrypted with Addicaid. For more information, please refer to our Privacy Policy.
Addicaid's mission is to get more people into recovery and stay in recovery. We know that recovery is different for everyone. Addicaid caters to individuals’ disease backgrounds, goals, and personalities so they can feel satisfied and excited about their treatment program. Addiction is a spectrum disorder, not a “you have it or you don’t” disease and it must be treated as such. Our platform makes addiction recovery more accessible and effective with tools that provide people who struggle with addiction and dependence disorders skills for lasting recovery. Addicaid's personalized products cater to unique relationships with substance and process addictions. Here, you can find any support groups, connect with people like you, and stay inspired along the way. Find and rate meetings, track your progress, and connect with others and make your recovery exactly how you want it to be.
To do this, we realized that the currently predominant treatment method (the 80 year old 12-step program) is long overdue for reinvention. Community support is essential in recovery and that is why we provide an extensive meeting directory for newcomers as well as recovery veterans. But less than 5% of people maintain recovery with the 12-step model, so we introduced a method that allows people to set their own goals without following a strict, one-size-fits-all curriculum. According to recent examinations of treatment programs, many are rooted in outdated methods rather than newer, digital approaches shown in studies to be more effective in helping people achieve and maintain addiction-free lives.
While we do the best we can to provide accurate meeting data, we know there are issues. If you notice any errors for a meeting, please email us at and provide us with the correct information.
