Google Maps Offers Drug Addiction Recovery Help on Maps

Google has issued a new update on Google Maps that will make it much easier for those struggling with addiction to find help. The update has added drug addiction recovery resources on the map and will give navigation data to get people there who need help.

The update doesn’t just provide addiction treatment centers and hospitals; it also shows the location of over 83,000 recovery meetings on the map, including Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meeting locations, reports BGR.

Google Maps also can show where people can get OTC medications for treating overdoses like Naloxone or Narcan. Those medications can be found by searching “Naloxone near me” or “Narcan near me.”

Along with the Google Maps update also comes a Google partnership with Recovery Resource Hub that will vet the map data, that page won’t feature any ads. Google built the tools for the 30th annual National Recovery Month.
