About the DrugAbuse.com Toll-Free Helpline and Directory
Each year, the DrugAbuse.com hotline connects thousands of people with substance abuse treatment programs throughout the U.S. toll-free. Thanks to our hotline sponsors, who answer calls 24/7, 365 days per year, you can discuss treatment options with well-established, carefully-selected providers across the country, each specializing in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.
Calls are connected with treatment organizations throughout the US depending on your zip code, IP address, the search terms you used to reach this site, and other criteria. Note that the provider you are connected with may not be in your city or even state, however it is often preferable to leave the “comforts” of your home area to treat an addiction. Your call will be answered by a treatment center advertiser who is paying to sponsor our hotline.
DrugAbuse.com receives no compensation based on which treatment provider you ultimately choose and there is never any obligation to use the provider you’re connected with. Both our treatment directory and our hotline are offered at no cost to you, and are paid instead by participating treatment center advertisers, so we urge you to call now if you are ready for help.
