The AllTreatment Story
We are an experienced team of software engineers, editors, and internet search executives now passionately pursuing ways to make treatment and recovery more accessible to anyone struggling with addiction. Most recently, we worked together in an endeavor that helped businesses and consumers find each other more effectively by enabling businesses to more strategically position themselves on the internet.
In early 2009 we made a discovery. Each one of us has been personally affected by drug and alcohol abuse -- with family members, relatives, and friends who are struggling with the disease of addiction. We began searching the internet for information on addiction recovery, only to find that a majority of the sites out there were either difficult-to-navigate government databases or sales come-ons disguised as information.
So AllTreatment was born. We are fully committed to helping individuals and families find useful, relevant, and trusted information on addiction and addiction recovery. We believe in creating awareness about addiction, encouraging and facilitating action toward recovery, and inspiring healing and growth personally and socially.
AllTreatment is active within the addiction community. We work with universities, specialized non-profits, and mental health practitioners all around the United States.
Thank you for visiting our site. We trust you will find what we expect to deliver: Real information about addiction and addiction recovery.

After finishing her degree in English and Norwegian at the University of Washington, Bailey joined AllTreatment’s editorial staff in hopes of promoting holistic understandings of addiction. Bailey’s work at AllTreatment.com attempts to foster an atypical approach to addiction recovery, one that looks beyond standard psychophysical explanations to a more complex web of social, political, and cultural interrelationships. Bailey enjoys working with artists who contribute to the ever-changing representations of substance abuse and recovery such as Chris Arnade, Marni Mann, and Claire Martin. Reaching past the confines of AllTreatment, Bailey has also written about addiction and religion for Relevant Magazine, prescription drug abuse for Opposing Views, and drug policy for Medical Marijuana Blog. Her time away from work is best spent at home with her two cat-children or out hiking in Washington’s mountain wilderness.
Brandon Yu serves as the Outreach Coordinator for AllTreatment. Before graduating from the University of Washington with a degree in English, he became associated with AllTreatment by contributing content to the website and its associates. His article subjects generally revolve around the politics in drug control and addiction treatment. Some of his editorial contributions include California Correctional Crisis and Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, which discussed the socioeconomic implications of marijuana legalization in light of its defeat in California in 2010. Articles written specifically for the website include Youth and Marijuana, a study that discussed why teenagers experiment with drugs, as well as one on Vivitrol, a potential new cure for heroin addiction. He intends his articles to create a discourse with his readers and associates about the causes and effects of the cycle of addiction, as well as the proper political, social, and economic means that must be taken in ending it.
When he is not in the office, Brandon enjoys a variety of activities, such as reading, writing, socializing, collecting vinyl records, and attending concerts. He is also a prime believer in “getting outside one’s comfort zone,” and tries to find new areas to explore as well as new people to meet.
Daniel joined AllTreatment as an Editorial Intern after earning an English degree at the University of Washington and he has recently become an Outreach Coordinator for the Seattle office. His other office titles include Cake Boy D, The Toileteer, Savage Dan, Doctor Danhattan, The Dan Hatter, and sometimes simply Dan. He has contributed articles to OpenDemocracy.net, EmpoweringParents.com, and ReligiousTolerance.org. In his work for AllTreatment, Daniel aims to foster understanding and compassion surrounding addiction issues. Daniel actually found himself at AllTreatment following a self-imposed exile from the deep, dark, surprisingly addictive world of internet dragon-slaying. When the real world became unavoidable Daniel went a-wandering, lost and confused somewhere in his mid-twenties, only to wash up on the shores of AllTreatment where he traded in his digital sword and shield for a digital pen and pad. Now instead of fighting dragons, he raids with AllTreatment against the perils of drug and behavioral addiction. Daniel’s leisure time is spent enjoying rock climbing, home improvement projects, and underwater photography. His dream is to combine all of these into a nonprofit venture that helps rebuild coral reef structures while taking sweet pics of fishies.

Rita Baldini is an editor at AllTreatment and is currently based in Seattle, WA. Following her move from the Land of Lincoln (Illinois), she found purpose in Seattle exploring the dynamic world of substance abuse and exposing the struggles of addiction. Her passion for health, drug policy reform, and humanity ignites her desire to share cutting edge information in an ever-evolving world. Past articles by Rita include: Not So “Green”, California’s Cannabis History, and Killing More Than Just Pain. When she is not writing, Rita’s often sighted dancing her face off at concerts, contriving pieces of art that resemble the work of a talented eight year, treasure-hunting in thrift stores, and pounding away on a keyboard or bass guitar.
Sharon is an Editorial Coordinator at All Treatment. Coming from Miami, she has seen the downside of teens and young adults that try to keep up with the clubbing culture that is so heavily emphasized through social media. With a background in journalism, she is looking forward to spreading the word about it. After completing her degree in communications and French at the University of Miami, she is most interested in using AllTreatment as a forum on issues related to gender studies and its relation to addictive tendencies.
As a newcomer to Seattle, Sharon spends most of her time outside of her cubicle getting to know the city by eating out, picnicking and basically anything that includes food. She likes to think it’s all part of the researching process for the food blog she’s going to start, similar to this one she did back in her hometown for one of her classes. She hopes to one day use her writing experience and restaurant investigation to create a space similar to a bookstore cafe where printed works will be appreciated once more and local writers and artists will have the opportunity to get self-published.
