Rehab Carolinas Advertising Policies
Paid advertisers that receive phone calls made to the number listed on the website or reply to chat requests through the website are referred to as “treatment providers”. Before a treatment provider may become a partner, the treatment provider must undergo a vetting process in order to determine whether they are a current, licensed provider performing addiction treatment services for patients. The process involves the treatment provider hosting an on-site visit from our staff or contractors, completing a standardized survey, and/or providing proof of current licensure. A listing of the services offered by each facility, the history and qualifications of their staff, and accreditations they possess (i.e. Joint Commission, NAATP, LegitScript) are among the information gained from the standardized survey. On-site visits are required simply to confirm the existence of an operational treatment provider.
Our vetting process is not formulated to critique the quality of a treatment provider, neither generally or for any specific issues facing future website users. In addition, the vetting process should not be viewed as an endorsement of a particular treatment provider or the results received. The vetting process is an attempt to identify the industry’s unlicensed or illegitimate players and prevent them from falsely advertising as a partner treatment provider on the website. We do not guarantee that all falsifications will be identified, or that the website will be free from illegitimate players using the website for advertising purposes; however, we are and will continue to take affirmative steps to minimize those occurrences.
RehabCarolinas.com offers partners the opportunity to advertise with us on our website. All informational content is clearly separated from paid advertisements. All paid advertisements are carefully reviewed and vetted by the team at RehabCarolinas.com.
A separate revenue stream is set up specifically for paid advertisements in order to insulate any informational content and content given to RehabCarolinas.com from our contributors. Advertisers and sponsors are not influential towards any content or editorial decisions. Advertisers and sponsors will not acquire any advanced knowledge of RehabCarolinas.com’s informational content, nor does the RehabCarolinas.com team edit content to assuage or accommodate paid advertisements.
All advertisements are clearly identified by the advertiser’s signature or trademark. The appearance of a paid advertisement is not an endorsement on behalf of RehabCarolinas.com. Advertisers have no influence over the search results conducted on RehabCarolinas.com.
Some advertisements may be displayed to you based on collected information from your visits to our site and elsewhere; however, information displayed by advertisers is entirely separate from any informational content provided to you by RehabCarolinas.com.

In order to avoid any conflicts of interest, we do not accept or publish advertisements promoting products or services that do not align with our mission and ethical stance. Such advertisements include, but are not limited to, promotion of firearms, nudity, sexual services, drugs, dating, medications, gambling, addiction treatment facilities known to be under investigation for or convicted of fraud, or any other product or service which we consider contrary to our goals and vision.
