Bath Salts Hotline
24/7, Toll-Free, Confidential
Table of contents
Many people associate bath salts with a soothing, warm bath to relax the muscles, but in the pharmaceutical world, it’s associated with something else. Bath salts, also known as synthetic cathinones, are manufactured stimulants that are made from the leaves of the khat plant, which grows in East Africa and southern Arabia. They are unregulated mind-altering drugs, comparable to cocaine and ecstasy/MDMA, which is why they’re commonly abused.
Are you currently seeking information or help for abuse or addiction involving bath salts, or do you have a loved one who is? If so, one of the first steps you can take is to call a free bath salts hotline. Hope is available.
What Is a Bath Salts Helpline?
A bath salts helpline is a free hotline that’s designated for people who are struggling with the abuse or addiction of this substance. It can also be used for people who are seeking help for someone else. The ultimate goal of these hotlines is to provide information about treatment options for bath salt abuse or addiction, including those available at The Recovery Village.
When Should I Call a Bath Salts Hotline?
The Recovery Village’s 24-hour bath salts hotline is always open. That means you can call anytime, day or night, if you need to talk to someone about starting a treatment plan. However, if you need immediate treatment for a medical emergency related to bath salts, call 911 first. The use of bath salts has been known to cause a number of side effects that can pose various and potentially fatal health and safety risks to the user and others.
What Questions Will I Be Asked When I Call a Bath Salts Hotline?
Although no two substance abuse hotline representatives are exactly alike, all of them need to ask a series of questions during the call. This allows callers to get the help they need for themselves or for their loved ones. The following are just a few of the questions you can expect to be asked when calling The Recovery Village’s hotline:
- What is the primary motivation for treatment?
- Does the user currently have a support system for his or her addiction?
- Has the user been diagnosed with PTSD?
- Is the user currently ready to enroll in a treatment program?
- Has the user experienced any suicidal thoughts or tendencies?
