ABOUT THE NIAAA ALCOHOL TREATMENT NAVIGATOR
The NIAAA Alcohol Treatment Navigator is a new online resource that helps people find quality treatment. Finding quality care can be confusing. The Navigator makes it easier by telling you what you need to know and what you need to do to find appropriate, quality care.
WHY IS IT NEEDED?
Approximately 15 million adults in the U.S. have an alcohol use disorder. But less than 10 percent receive treatment, and many of them do not receive care that meets their needs.
