Drug & Alcohol Abuse Hotline:
Get Free Help Now

Only ten percent of those who need addiction treatment in the United States each year successfully seek or receive it. When one considers that today over twenty-one million people are struggling with addiction in America, ten percent seems like a very small number. There are many reasons why treatment may be challenging to get. For some, stigma or fear may be a problem. For others, a lack of insurance and financial difficulties may be the driving force behind not seeking help.

Still, others may not know where to turn for advice or guidance. There are several free addiction help sources addicts, or their loved ones can turn to when deciding how and when to seek addiction treatment. One such source is the various local drug and alcohol abuse hotlines and the national drug abuse hotline.

What Are Substance Abuse Hotline Numbers?

Substance abuse hotline numbers are anonymous, confidential, toll-free numbers that offer assistance to those with a drug or alcohol addiction. Alcohol and drug abuse hotlines are staffed by trained advisors, some of whom have successfully completed treatment and are in recovery themselves. Addiction does not impact just one person. It affects the addict along with their family and friends. While hotlines are not equipped to provide counseling services, they provide support, education, and resources to help the person addicted and their family better understand the steps to seek addiction treatment.

Aftercare

aftercare

Recovery from addiction is not a singular event that ends when treatment ends. The recovery journey is a life-long process, and our team is here to support you every step of the way. Our caring and compassionate team of advisors can help arrange your treatment’s vital aftercare elements that will keep you on the road to recovery and help avoid relapse.

Essential aftercare components include ongoing therapy appointments, group meetings such as alcoholics anonymous, sober living arrangements, and potentially, ongoing medical appointments. Equally as important to all of the above is accountability. Recovery is difficult when you take the journey alone. Having a partner in accountability to lean on during difficult phases of your recovery can mean the difference between ongoing sobriety and relapse.
