From the home page, when you go to any of the topics, do you get a drug/rehab center from your state/area advertising or is it from Texas? Just curious.

I see ads from my area - yes.  I see the same sort of thing when I Google something.  When you log onto the Internet, your IP address is going to show as being from somewhere.  There are ways to route it so that it shows somewhere different from where you actually are -- I remember reading about a Wired magazine editor who did an experiment where he tried to "disappear" and this was one of the methods he used to keep people off his trail -- but he had extremely advanced technical skills as well as money from his magazine for the needed equipment.

I clicked on many different topics.  They had numbers at the top, some state, some federal.

 

I think it should be noted that these are not necessarily "ads".  I've worked for some non-profit agencies that paid to get numbers out there to make us accessible to those in need.  WE didn't profit, we had to make ourselves visile to those seeking help.
