Ambien Hotline

352.771.2700  24/7, Toll-free, Confidential

A seemingly innocent sedative, Ambien — otherwise known as Zolpidem and “zombie pills” — is a hypnotic drug prescribed to those suffering from insomnia. Ambien tablets alter the brain chemicals to produce a calming effect that is conducive for sleep. However, if taken for longer than two weeks, this sleeping pill can be addictive, causing severe psychological and physical complications for the person taking it. If you find yourself or a loved one unable to stop taking Ambien, cutting off the usage yourself may lead to withdrawal — or worse. It takes professional detox care to successfully break your addiction. The Recovery Village intake specialists on our Ambien hotline are here to help you whenever you’re ready to leave addiction behind.

What Is an Ambien Hotline?

Our free Ambien hotline is a bridge to healing for anyone who has realized that they can no longer control their sleeping pill addiction and wants to get help. Our trained addiction specialists will answer your questions about sedative addiction, talk one-on-one with you about your situation and recommend treatment options at The Recovery Village that can help end your dependency.

When Should I Call an Ambien hotline?

The Recovery Village’s Ambien helpline is meant to help you get the long-term care you need to get off drugs for good. This line cannot provide emergency services. If you or someone you’re caring for is in immediate danger, call 911 right away.

Services from first responders are absolutely necessary if you notice the following Ambien overdose symptoms:

  • Small pupils
  • Blurry vision
  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness
  • Slowed or stopped breathing
  • Blue lips or fingers
  • Fainting
  • Collapse

If you are not experiencing a life-threatening situation, this hotline can help you deal with your sedative dependence. We will connect you with treatment programs and resources that can help when you’re ready to detox and seek professional rehabilitation care.

What Questions Will an Ambien Hotline Ask?

Your continued health is our first priority. When you call our Ambien 24 hour hotline, you’ll speak with a caring intake coordinator who will ask you a series of questions to better understand your current situation and help get you the treatment you need.

Questions may include:

  • Are you in immediate or life-threatening danger?
  • Are you (or a loved one) a risk to yourself or others because of addiction?
  • How long have you been using Ambien? How many pills do you take per day?
  • Do you struggle with any co-occurring disorders or addictions to other drugs?
  • Are you ready to begin a treatment program?

Is the Phone Call Confidential?

Absolutely. Every call to our Ambien helpline is always 100 percent private, and everything you discuss with your hotline counselor is confidential. We are fully committed to maintaining your trust and giving you the care you deserve.

Can I Start the Treatment Process When Calling This Hotline?

Yes — if you or a loved one are interested in beginning rehab immediately, this call can get you there. We encourage those with Ambien addictions to enroll in one of our detox programs as soon as possible. If you’re ready to leave sedatives behind, our intake coordinators can get you to one of our centers within a day of your call.
