Consumer Reports to Publish a Treatment Center Guide?

I heard a rumor that Consumer Reports will be publishing a treatment center guide. This could get interesting pretty fast. The government, Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) already publishes a comprehensive directory or a treatment center locator.

There are a few other treatment center directories that provide some good information on the treatment centers however both with SAMHSA and the Treatment Directories really don’t carry the same authority as does Consumer Reports. That said, I’m surprised that HealthGrades or some other authority in the space like Psychology Today has not ventured into our field to start ranking centers.

Knowing what I know I would much rather see what the consumers are saying on something like a Google Places Page like this one. I do not think Consumer Reports has much experience in the addiction field if any.
