NEED does not link to for-profit organizations, websites selling commercial services for profit (which includes for-profit detox or substance abuse referral services masquerading as general information websites), organizations that advocate abstinence only (e.g., AA or similar Twelve-Step programs), or other organizations whose philosophies conflict with NEED's harm reduction approach to public health.
