Addiction Influencers You Absolutely MUST Follow on Twitter

December 10, 2015

Twitter is an ideal way to keep up-to-date on industry news in the addiction/recovery field. Many of these ‘tweeters’ aggregate important industry news so you don’t have to check on updates yourself. However, Twitter is, unfortunately, full to the brim with inactive, spam or irrelevant tweeters.

Here we’ve included many little-known Twitter accounts we feel are worth following in 2016 and beyond. Many of these valuable influencers will be unfamiliar to many of our readers.  We believe many patients who attend our alcohol rehab will also benefit by following these influencers. If this is the case then we recommend you click on the below links and FOLLOW these people. If you are involved in the addiction or recovery industry in any way, you will surely benefit from following these people!
