Policies

Welcome to AddictionSurvivors.org The goal of these forums is to connect people with interest in getting/giving support with others relating to addiction disorders.

This board is not a place to reminisce about the days in active addiction. This is a positive resource for those seeking to become free from addiction disorders and for families and friends to find information and support. We ask that you cite sources (if possible) when posting facts and identify opinion as such. (IMO = "In my opinion") The views and opinions of the participants of this discussion forum do not necessarily represent the views and opinions of the website creators and administrators.

To maintain your anonymity, please DO NOT post personal information like name, phone number, email address, or other personal information.

No Medical Advice or Doctor-Patient Relationship
Information contained on or made available through the Site is not intended to and does not constitute medical advice, recommendations or counseling under any circumstance and no doctor-patient relationship is formed. We do not warranty or guarantee the accurateness, completeness, adequacy or currency of the information contained in or linked to the Site. Your use of information on the Site or materials linked to the Site is entirely at your own risk. Information obtained online should only help you in asking your doctor the right questions.

Commercial solicitation is prohibited. You may link to some government and non-profit sites as references to your

Posts that insult, mock, stigmatize, degrade people looking for help, off-topic or other inappropriate posts
may be deleted at the discretion of the Administrators. Continuation of this type of posting will result in suspension of
posting privileges and/or permanent banning from the board.

Posts that intentionally serve no purpose except to incite or provoke other board members will not be

postings will result in suspension of posting privileges and/or permanent banning from the board.

The Administrators reserve the right to modify or delete any post or thread deemed to be objectionable. We reserve the
right to suspend or permanently ban posting privileges of anyone for the stated or unstated policies, with or without
reason or explanation.

You also agree that you will not post any copyrighted material that is not owned by yourself or the owners of these
forums. In your use of these forums, you agree that you will not post any information which is vulgar, harassing, hateful,
threatening, invading of others privacy, sexually oriented, or violates any laws.

Friendly debate and differences of opinion for the purpose of education and information is welcome, as it is recognized
that there are as many individual experiences with addiction recovery as there are individuals who have been
prescribed this treatment.

We have appointed an independent reviewer to enforce these policies.
