Cocaine hotline

352.771.2700  24/7, Toll-Free, Confidential

Cocaine is a powerful, highly addictive drug. In the U.S. the drug is classified as a stimulant amongst the highest for risk of abuse and addiction.

Often, when faced with cocaine addiction, the time comes to take action and break dependence from the drug. Cocaine hotlines and helplines exist to offer support and direction for those ready to move forward in life without it.

A reality that is often faced when an individual is ready to seek treatment is that the problem can seem overwhelming. Questions commonly arise, such as when the right time to call a hotline is, what to do in a crisis situation and what to expect when calling for the first time.

We’ve provided answers to many of those questions below with the hope that when you’re ready to seek help for your or a loved one, you’ll do so.

What Is a Cocaine Hotline?

A cocaine hotline or helpline serves the same purpose as any other drug or alcohol hotline: to help the addicted find a path to free themselves from a substance’s grip. The major difference between a cocaine hotline and a generalized hotline is that the organization you are calling has specific experience in treating cocaine-related abuse and addiction.

When Should I Call a Cocaine Hotline?

First and foremost, if the situation you (or someone you are assisting) are in is life-threatening please call 911 immediately. While helplines on a national level can provide valuable assistance, it is only local emergency resources who can properly assess and take action when there is immediate danger of harming oneself or others.

When not faced with a critical, life-threatening health emergency, a call to a cocaine hotline is recommended when the time has come to break the dependence on the drug. Our 24-hour-a-day, seven-days-a-week cocaine hotline exists for that purpose.

What Kind of Questions Will They Ask When I Call a Cocaine Hotline?

When calling a helpline or hotline, the questions will first focus on immediate health and well being. From that point, the conversation will focus on a course of action to best help the individualized situation at hand. To that end, expect the following types of questions to be asked when calling our, or any, hotline:

  • Is the user in a situation where they may do harm to themseleves or others?
  • Does the cocaine abuse or addiction coexist with other dependencies or conditions (including, but not limited to, other drugs, alcohol, behavioral or eating disorders)?
  • What is the frame of mind of the user, and is he/she seeking a drug treatment program?
  • Are the programs and services offered a good match for the caller’s or user’s individual needs?

When I Call, Is the Conversation Confidential?

Our 24-hour, toll-free cocaine hotline is 100% confidential. Any path forward needs to begin with mutual trust. Part of that mutual trust is confidentiality. If you are calling a national or local drug helpline, it is recommended that you ask about confidentiality when calling that number.

Can I Start the Cocaine Treatment Process at the Time of My Call?

It depends on what helpline you are calling. We view calling our cocaine hotline as the first step toward recovery. Our goal will be to ensure we have the right drug treatment program, be it detox, rehab or any other service, to move someone forward in his/her recovery.
