The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement around the site, and gather demographic information.

Cookies and Web Beacons

www.opiateaddictionresource.com uses cookies to store information. We do use third party advertisements on www.opiateaddictionresource.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).

You can opt out of third-party vendor's use of cookies for interest-based advertising by visiting http://www.aboutads.info.

DoubleClick DART Cookie

We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google's DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests ("interest based targeting").

The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses "non personally identifiable information". It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers.

You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.google.com/settings/ads.

You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.

Email Addresses, Personal, and Medical Information

The privacy/confidentiality policy for www.opiateaddictionresource.com regarding e-mail addresses, personal and medical information conforms to the requirements of the HIPAA. No confidential, private or semi-private information such as email addresses, content of emails, contact information, names, personal or medical data received from our visitors are ever shared with any third parties. Email addresses will never be sold or shared.

Where do calls go?

For those seeking addiction treatment for themselves or a loved one, our OpiateAddictionResource.com helpline is a private, convenient solution.

Calls to any general helpline (non-facility specific 1-8XX numbers) for your visit will be answered by an admissions representative of Treatment Management Company, a paid sponsor of OpiateAddictionResource.com, to help determine whether their treatment programs are an option for you.

Calls to any specific treatment center listed within our directory are answered directly by those facilities.

Our helpline is offered at no cost to you and carries no obligation to enter into treatment. No commission or other fee is ever paid to OpiateAddictionResource.com that is dependent upon whether you enter treatment, or which treatment provider you ultimately choose.
