FindLocalTreatment.com Brings Trust & Accuracy To Addiction Treatment
The mobile-optimized website allows people to search for treatment based on their location, insurance, addiction type, and treatment availability.

After witnessing friends and family struggle with substance use disorders, Ohio native Raj Gupta has spent the last year working with the community to figure out how he could help in the fight against the opioid crisis.


In the beginning, Raj just wanted to understand what was devastating his community.


He spoke with addiction experts, individuals with substance use disorders, members of law enforcement, and treatment providers to try to make sense of the tragedy that was impacting families across the country. He soon discovered that people who were searching for treatment options online were getting lost in information that was scattered, inaccurate, and difficult to navigate.


Much of the available information was coming from outdated paper resource guides which failed to capture frequent changes to provider information. The end result was that too many people searching for help were ending up confused and discouraged.


Successful placement in a trusted treatment program should not be left to chance. It must become the norm.


After hearing story after story about the frustration of finding a qualified provider with capacity, Raj recruited his friend Chase McAleese and together they built FindLocalTreatment.com, which is now the easiest way to find trusted addiction treatment in the greater Cincinnati area.


The mobile-optimized website allows people to search for treatment based on their location, insurance, addiction type, and treatment availability.


Support From Mercy Health

Mercy Health partnered with FindLocalTreatment.com to speed up community adoption of the platform regionally. In March, Mercy introduced members of its Addiction Treatment Collaborative to the technology. 

FindLocalTreatment.com is now the most searched and most up-to-date resource for addiction treatment options in the Greater Cincinnati region.


The technology platform will be integrated in regional Mercy Health Emergency Departments so anyone seeking addiction treatment can receive accurate and reliable information immediately.

The FindLocalTreatment.com team is ready to expand to every community in Ohio. To that end, they are looking to partner with more healthcare systems and treatment providers across the state.


Any healthcare system that wants the ability to give accurate information to individuals seeking addiction help (while reducing strain on staff) should contact info@findlocaltreatment.com to get set up.
