Are you or someone you know suffering from addiction, be it alcohol, prescription medication or other drugs?
Do you need information on quality care facilities and organizations that can assist you or your loved ones in getting the help they need?
You are not alone.
Addiction is a medical disease that is treatable. The medical treatments are as varied as the individual. It involves multifaceted relations including: past experiences, brain chemistry, genetics, and environment. The Missouri Center for Addiction Research and Engagement (MO-CARE) is a research and training center. We research and teach professionals how to most effectively treat addiction. However we do not provide treatment services. Below is a short list of resources for those who need help and do not know where to start.
Asking for help is the first step on the journey to recovery and wellness.
