Research by The Recovery Village

The COVID-19 pandemic has rapidly impacted America’s addiction and mental health crises, making up-to-date behavioral health research more vital than ever before. The Recovery Village uses proven research methods to deliver current trends and statistics on drug and alcohol addiction, mental health, rehab treatment and life in recovery. These evidence-based insights into addiction recovery can help people understand what to expect when facing an addiction and feel more confident about getting the treatment they need.

We also hope that this research helps keep our community partners, including other behavioral healthcare providers as well as educators, parents and members of the media informed and up-to-date on the latest trends and outcomes in the fields of addiction and mental health treatment.


Surveys conducted by The Recovery Village use an organic, random sample of U.S. Americans collected through Pollfish’s random device engagement (RDE) sampling method. All surveys are double-blind studies with a 95% confidence interval and ±3% margin of error. 

Sample sizes vary depending on the population size being studied, and are calculated using national estimates compiled by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration in the latest National Survey on Drug Use and Health or another appropriate government source.

Survey questions are developed using recommendations and definitions from government and non-profit sources (e.g. the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism), as well as insights from our addiction experts and medical professionals.


The Recovery Village aims to improve the quality of life for people struggling with a substance use or mental health disorder with fact-based content about the nature of behavioral health conditions, treatment options and their related outcomes. We publish material that is researched, cited, edited and reviewed by licensed medical professionals. The information we provide is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. It should not be used in place of the advice of your physician or other qualified healthcare provider.
