Treatment Atlas

Phone: 800-597-2557

Answer a 13-question, anonymous assessment that will take around 10 minutes. You’ll receive guidance you can use to find the right treatment. Research shows that addiction can be treated using certain clinical practices, but there are no quality standards that require addiction treatment facilities to deliver these practices. As a result, the quality of care varies, and it’s unclear whether facilities are doing the right things. This can make it hard for people to find high-quality addiction treatment for themselves or their loved ones. ATLAS can help you compare treatment facilities to see which are providing high-quality addiction care described in the Shatterproof National Principles of Care. ATLAS is managed by Shatterproof and RTI International and now serves 6 states, including Louisiana.

Cost of care and accepted forms of payment reported by each facility.
