    since you are on the social media section, i assume you are also looking for advice from this respective, so my suggestion is to have full-blown social profile on facebook, twitter, G+, pinterest, and Instagram, make it professional and link to your website, get targeted followers and keep them posted with useful info, you'll have more calls you can handle if it goes viral.. just my 2 cents.

    First of all active local promotion would help you, but on a modern aspect of promoting businesses, it would be helpful to have a professionally designed website, indicate your services, facilities and contact information.

    You also have to make sure that you are using the right keywords for your business. The thing is people today would not roam around the city to find a rehab center or any businesses establishment for that matter; most likely people would "Google" it.. Using keywords such as "rehab centers in Henderson County" or something more specific.. So you have to make sure that your business's site would rank high in those keywords.

    Others would ask their trusted friends and families, and this is where social media and community interaction is important. All these things are relatively easy if you have the time, skills and effort to burn on this project, if you don't well I suggest you leave it to the experts.

    IMO, the services you provide are great but most people who involved in alcohol don't really admit that they need it.
    So the first thing, I suggest is to write a good sale letter. I don't know if you know how to write a good sale letter.

    Headline - you want your title to grab their attention in less than 5 seconds.
    You want to pinpoint their problem. ( ex. most people addicted to drugs / alcohol because xxxx reasons - you will know better than me, maybe like, are you using alcohol to release your stress ? ex.2 they might want to quit, but don't know how. )

    Give them some education to show you are the expert and to trust you. This is something very personal, so I will really suggest that to build the trust. The more trust you can have with those people, the easier they will come to you.

    I am doing my case study to help people expand their business online.
    If you want more in depth, you can message me. I will need to know more details about your business and your background. Free consultation over skype.

    Build a ad campaign and capture leads, much like Fabriano states above, state some shocking statistics so people take notice, I suspect people on drugs and alcoholics wont go looking for this help so often but family will, and this will grab them if its someone they really care about.

    Offer them a quick guide to the signs of drug and alcohol abuse to capture the leads from there you can build a relationship through content you send them and directing them to take action for their love ones sake.

    Also think about how you could help them convince the person it is for the best as I imagine they could find this a challenge.

    I suggest you use a youtube video and title it with a long tail keyword
    which also describes your service. it should get on google easily if the keyword is right.
    make a couple of these and you will be on your way.

    I'm guessing a bulk of clients are referred to you by defense attorneys with charged clients who want to get ahead of the game before court, by counselors, by courts/judges, parole officers, halfway houses, doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists etc....

    maybe a social network for all those professionals to collaborate and exchange info, would provide value to them and bring you business.

    Have you tried your hand at online marketing
    It relitively cheep to set up (clickbank and advertising, the former is free and the latter there are many ways to advertise effectively on a small budget) and can earn you alot of money if you do it right, but i don't recomend throwing yourself in the deep end as its doubtful if you will make any money that way.

    Some of the best training courses that iv'e seen belong to the six figure mentors, this is a link tot their free boot camp that will explain about online marketing and help you get set up.

    There is a lot of places you can promote your business. Classified ads are a great place to start. Besides an online business I run, I run a successful business as a tennis professional. The majority of my clients for that come from craigslist. There is so much traffic on craigslist so wherever you post the ad you will definitely have a lot of eye balls on it. You just have to be careful you do not get flagged by putting it in the wrong category. Twitter and Facebook would also be a great place to promote your business. You just have to market to the right crowd.

      While choosing from loads of ways listed already, distribute flyers in your local community advertising the services to them. that would be well worth the effort. Goodluck!

    It's all about "cross promoting" if you help a business , they can help you. To me that's one of the greatest ways to get free advertisement and market your business. Also Flickr, Facebook and Instagram

    You have to work offline first and online will only be your reference page.You can create flyers and brochures for the shopping malls,gas stations,small hang out places,pubs,bars etc < yes this might read joking but you can target from 100 meters distance> .A website with a landing page and your essentials is enough to get the right people in.you can also target the community centers,social hang outs like jogging parks<this is where all types of people come in>. You can do road shows and campaigns at education centers and some rehabs for the old which you can show case it on daily news papers and news channels or radios. At tourist spots you can make a awareness campaign,give short speeches in local.tourist buses. This way you can collect revenues too and make a handsome followers. If you are doing it right offline then online social medias can pick you on the way. Give interviews and write columns on your cities or states most watched channels.

    The best way to promote your services is to let people talk about them. Social networks are great for building communities, discussing different problems and finding support. Your clients will find like-minded people on your fan page and will be very grateful. That will enhance engagement and customers' loyalty. Use Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest for B2C and LinkedIn for B2B.

    My software can auto like by searching a word or a tag on Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr and Twitter. You can run it 24/7 and you can specify the limits for each thread yourself. That is just one of the many featurs. Anyway those automatic generated likes will be shown on the posts/statusses/tweets/pics as links (tier 3) to your social network profiles which must contain links (tier 2) to your website (tier 1). You are not only doing SEO, but also targetted marketing because you can search words or tags from your niche. You will also boost your social reach.

    Are you looking for a free or paid promotion. Weight things out first. If you're looking for calls, try CPA ad companies.
