Freelance Writing Opportunities

IRETA is seeking freelance writers to create content for our blog. We post on a wide range of topics related to addiction and substance use, including:

  • Local, state and national drug policy
  • Nicotine addiction
  • Local rates of opioid overdose
  • Trauma-informed addiction treatment
  • The alcohol-violence link
  • Model programs of addiction treatment and/or integrated physical and behavioral healthcare

See ireta.org/blog for more examples.

Blog posts are distributed via email to over 6,000 addiction and allied health and human services professionals and promoted via our social media channels. Freelancing may lead to a more formal media consulting role with IRETA. Please contact jessica@ireta.org for information about compensation (we will pay you for submissions that we publish) or to pitch a story.

Note: in the articles we write (and post), we aim to use language that does not perpetuate stigma toward people dealing with substance use-related issues. We use the article “Confronting Inadvertant Stigma and Pejorative Language in Addiction Scholarship: A Recognition and Response” as a rough guide to our terminology.
