  1. Hello, my name is Martin Vivek. I am a researcher on the topic of addiction, and alcohol abuse and came across http://www.wknts.com

    I noticed you mention StopAlcoholAbuse.gov as well as a few other trusted places. Thank you for mentioning them.

    I wanted to suggest that you list http://www.withdrawal.org/alcohol/ as well.

    Withdrawal.org is part of the USA Addiction Treatment Partnership. A Florida based non-profit. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Take care.
