Open4Recovery is the #1 community on the net covering social issues about Recovery from Mental Health Disorders.
The Open4... family of web sites supports Operation Savannah - a 501c3 foundation providing information on PTSD and support services for veterans and their families. Please consider helping them if we have helped you.
Our purpose is to change consumers attitude for the better by providing them quality educational information. And to equip them to evaluate various recovery services from mental health disorders in an objective and informed manner.
Our authors are all recognized experts in their field. All content is fact checked for accuracy and ethics by our editorial team. We only publish reader contributions that describe a personal experience with support group or service provider. The Internet has plenty of places for consumers to opine on mental health disorders, support groups and the different approaches to recovery.
We do not charge anyone for inclusion in our product directories. We do not sell any of their products or services. We publish our directories as a safe way for our readers to learn about the issues publishers face when it comes to advertising as the preferred way to monetizing their content.
Do be on your guard against recovery scams and "hyped" recovery product claims. Those with mental health disorders are vulnerable. Scams taking advantage of the vulnerable are a scourge to us all. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
Recovery from mental health disorders is no place for the quick fix. We need to move beyond this thinking and accept that it will require effort. If we work together we can regain the power of accurate knowledge. And if we apply this knowledge we will be able to accurately evaluate the different recovery approaches being offered.
It takes a lot of effort for us to publish top quality articles for our readers. It is a full time job to properly secure our site from hackers. We battle against fake news and manipulated search results promoting advertorial product reviews. Ethics in recovery services makes taming the wild west look like a walk in the park.
