As a key stakeholder in an addiction treatment program, you know that addiction treatment programs across the globe face a multitude of problems, including drawing in patients, having individuals within the community not wanting you to move in and ultimately, how to effectively reach the individuals who need you the most. 

As a marketing agency that has served many programs throughout the United States, we can tell you that addiction treatment marketing is NOT a one size fits all deal...

...AND it’s a long and arduous process. 

For the sake of this article, I’d like to focus on an intensive outpatient program (IOP) and men’s recovery community in Colorado. 

This IOP and men’s recovery community opened in July 2019 and was founded by two individuals who had a real passion for rural healthcare. The two founders and their team came to InnerAction Media (IAM). Together, we discussed their desire to develop a program that offered high-quality yet affordable treatment to their community.

Throughout the marketing process, IAM found a couple of obstacles that our client needed to overcome: the Colorado community believes that our client is part of a national franchise, the community had a “not in my backyard” (NIMBY) mentality and our clients found that they have a large volume of patient intake from healthcare referrals, rather than self-refers (stay tuned for why this is an issue for their content, folks). 

Learn how we worked to combat these issues with the influence of marketing.

According to HubSpot, social media marketing is the act of creating content to promote your business and products on multiple social media platforms like Facebook or Instagram.

Anyone can post a picture on Instagram and get likes, right? Sure. But it takes the combination of creativity with strategy to develop an active social media marketing plan that drives the results you want for your business. 

People spend an average of three hours on social media per day; that includes 90.4 percent millennials, 77.5 percent Gen X and 48.2 percent Baby Boomers. 

That’s every single day; people are looking at, swiping past, or engaged in someone’s social media profile. There’s a lot of “noise” in the online world. You want to stand out. How do you get your audience to look at your social media messages and respond? With social media marketing, of course. 

Is it worth it? YES. Let me break that down for you:

  • Y: YOU LIVE IN A DIGITAL DRIVEN WORLD
  • E: EVOLVE YOUR RELATIONSHIPS
  • S: SALES GROWTH INCREASES
