Calling Addiction Hotlines

Drug addiction hotlines are available toll-free and around the clock to answer questions about drug and/or alcohol addiction treatment from those who are looking for recovery options and support.

Whether you have specific questions, are looking for local drug addiction treatment center or just need to talk to someone who can help you avoid relapse, drug addiction hotline admissions coordinators are always available. That’s what Holly B. discovered when she realized treatment was her only hope:

“I made the best decision when I put myself into treatment this time around. I am looking forward to getting my daughter back and moving away from the people that I do not need to be around. I look forward to trying to create a new life in recovery. If you seek recovery, my advice is to see recovery as a new freedom. Real freedom is not having to be a slave to your addiction anymore. It will be the best decision you will ever make!1Holly B., Heroes in Recovery

Michael’s House offers those who are struggling with drug addiction the chance to change their lives through drug detox and drug treatment. We offer individual counseling, group therapy and holistic options designed to treat the entire person, body, mind and spirit. Addiction hotlines are the first step on the road to recovery and a life lived free from the control of a substance.2

Get Answers to Your Questions

Woman making serious call

Along with learning about treatment options, if you or a loved one are dealing with drug addiction, addiction hotlines can help you get answers to your questions whenever they arise.

You may need to find a local 12-Step meeting or a doctor in your town who specializes in treating those who struggle with addiction in a compassionate way. Perhaps you’re looking for a therapist or a support group for a specific type of addiction. No matter the need, a drug hotline associated with a treatment center or addiction organization can help.

Finding a Drug Treatment Center

One of the most popular reasons for calling a drug addiction hotline is to get help finding the right drug treatment center for you or a loved one. Whether you’re looking for inpatient drug rehab or sober living services after successfully completing drug addiction treatment, drug addiction hotlines can help you find what you’re looking for.

 

Getting Support

Drug addiction hotlines are also a great way to find support where and when you need it. If you’re struggling with addiction cravings, an addiction hotline can help you find the closest 12-Step meeting.3 If you’re feeling vulnerable about an upcoming event, an addiction hotline can help you find an accountability partner.

If you have a loved one who is using drugs and you need help planning an intervention, a drug helpline can connect you with a professional interventionist in your area. No matter the question or the reason, drug addiction hotlines are a resource you can use 24 hours a day.

 

Preventing Relapse

If you are feeling tempted to use drugs or alcohol in sobriety, the best way to keep yourself from doing it is to talk to someone.

If you don’t have a sponsor or your sponsor isn’t available, it’s generally a good idea to talk to an objective third party rather than confide in a friend or family member.

Also, you can increase your chances of avoiding relapse by talking to someone who can provide you with referrals or just talk to you until you no longer feel the urge to use. A drug abuse hotline can be a place to turn when drug cravings threaten to derail your recovery.

 

Treatment at Michael’s House

At Michael’s House, we offer everything you need to break free from alcohol and drug addiction. Our treatment is residential and begins with medically-supervised detox. Medically-supervised detox gives your body the chance to rid itself of the toxins of the drug before beginning any type of therapy. Detoxing in this way greatly increases the likelihood of treatment success.

Once your body adjusts to being without your drug of choice, you will begin a comprehensive treatment program that is designed specifically to meet your needs based on your experience with addiction.

As you progress through the program and reach your treatment goals, you can update your treatment plan to include new treatments or continue with therapies that are helping you meet your goals. When you successfully complete your program, you will be eligible for continued care at our residential sober living treatment facility here in Palm Springs, California.
