Drug and alcohol use disorders contributed to 67,367 overdose deaths in the U.S. in 2018, reports the National Institute on Drug Abuse. If you or a loved one is struggling with a substance use disorder, an addiction hotline can connect you with a professional treatment consultant who can answer all your questions about addiction and help you find a quality detox or drug rehab center that offers safe evidence-based treatments.
What Is an Addiction Hotline?
An addiction hotline is a 24-hour confidential hotline that allows you to speak with a professional consultant about drug and alcohol use, signs of overdose or poisoning, and treatments that can help you achieve long-term recovery, such as medical detox. A treatment consultant can answer and address any questions and concerns you may have about addiction, confidentiality, privacy, and therapy, and recommend the next steps you can take to get help.
When Should You Call an Addiction Hotline?
An addiction hotline is open and available to anyone who wants to talk about addiction — whether it be their own or that of their loved one. You should call an addiction hotline if your addiction is making you feel depressed or triggering suicidal thoughts, or if you have questions about certain treatments or about what goes on at a drug rehab center. You can even call an addiction hotline to talk about your drug or alcohol problem with no obligation to commit to treatment.
The purpose of an addiction hotline is to provide support and assistance to those who are struggling with addiction and need help. When addiction is causing serious problems in your life, a treatment consultant can give you hope and point you in the right direction regarding where to find additional support in the form of drug rehab. Only 10.8% of the 21.7 million people who need addiction treatment in the U.S. take steps to seek and receive treatment, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
