Fred Moss MD announces a newly redesigned online support group for addicts at AddictSupport.com. The site, developed by Fred Moss, offers support to patients, friends, and family members who are affected by addictions.
Online PR News – 07-February-2011 – – CINCINNATI, OH -- Fred Moss, MD, a Northwestern University-trained psychiatrist dedicated to community wellness and addiction treatment, announces the reopening of AddictSupport.com. The newly redesigned website offers online support groups for any person impacted by addiction. Free membership through the website is available to the first 100 members, or until September 1, 2011. Visitors can obtain their free membership by using the promotion code 'getitfree.'
"Addiction affects millions of people all over the world. Whether a person suffers from dependence on alcohol, drugs, pornography, food, gambling, or even the Internet, the addiction doesn't just affect the patient. As a result addiction destroys quality of life for patients, their families, and their friends. The benefit of a site like AddictSupport.com is that it invites everyone involved to participate in discussions that can bring about a new understanding of addiction treatment and empower them to take steps towards restoration," said Fred Moss, owner of AddictSupport.com (http://fredmossmd.info/).
The goal of AddictSupport.com is to unite individuals who have suffered from addiction into one global network. Addicts and other interested parties need not be deterred by physical distance to come together and meet at the same site, openly discussing their addiction-related experiences through AddictSupport.com's 10 different communities.
Until now, most existing websites were narrowly focused, concentrating on providing support to small subsets of the entire population. However, Fred Moss and other professionals like him believe that maximum benefits are achieved when all affected parties come together with a singular goal. The new site uses cutting-edge web technology to bring these people together. Patients and others affected by addiction will have access to audio communication, texts, emails, real-time conferences, downloads, and blogs through a virtual community overseen by Fred Moss MD.
Each of the site's 10 communities is tailored to one class of addiction, although membership allows users access to the other addiction communities as well. In addition, a virtual lobby is available for all users to openly engage in discussion with the broader addiction community.
"This is an exciting and promising new approach to the concept of addiction that has not been initiated in any significant way on the Internet to this point. The primary goal of the site is to help people gain a greater understanding about the concept of addiction, to create a support network involving all parties, and to utilize member resources to make a difference in the lives of patients. Without treatment, addiction can become deadly and thoroughly destructive," said Moss.
