Picking up the phone is the best way to start the process of detox and rehabilitation.

Often the barrier to making that call is the unknowns that go along with it. To help overcome such hesitation we’ve provided answers to some common questions below.

What is The Recovery Village Helpline?

The Recovery Village addiction helpline is led by helpful representatives awaiting your call. Many of our helpline operators and facility employees are also in recovery, so they can empathize and help you or a loved one navigate this journey comfortably.

“Alcohol and drugs stripped everything away from me. I know I wanted to be heard. I felt like nobody understood, so it’s good to be able to say I do understand.”
– Stephanie, The Recovery Village Helpline Operator, In Recovery Since 2013

What Is a Hydrocodone Hotline?

If you or someone you know is hooked on hydrocodone, getting help is necessary to safely detox from these pills. The good news? Help is only a hotline away. The Recovery Village’s free hydrocodone hotline can be your first step in a healthier direction. The caring specialists on this line will listen to your struggles, answer your questions and get you the treatment you need to break free from hydrocodone addiction. All it takes is one phone call.

When Should I Call a Hydrocodone Hotline?

This hydrocodone helpline can get you started on a treatment plan, but cannot provide immediate emergency services. If you’re in a life-threatening situation or in a state where you could harm yourself or others, or you suspect a hydrocodone overdose, call 911 right away.

If you or a loved one is in a stable state, calling our hydrocodone 24-hour hotline can be your best chance at receiving the detox care you need. Once you reach the point where you realize you are no longer in control of your addiction, it’s time to call a hotline to consider your treatment options. And remember, there is no shame in reaching out.

If I Call, What Questions Will They Ask?

When you call our hotline, you’ll speak with a trained addiction specialist whose main goal will be to get you the answers and help you need. Everything you discuss will be between you and your counselor only, so there is no need to hide any information. The more questions you answer, the more we’ll be able to help. Questions may include:

  • Is your life, or that of someone else, in imminent danger because of your hydrocodone use?
  • Do you struggle with co-occurring disorders such as depression or alcoholism?
  • Have you ever sought treatment for your hydrocodone use?
  • Are you ready and willing to start treatment?

When I Call, Is the Conversation Confidential?

Absolutely. To best serve you, our helpline is free, available 24/7, and completely confidential. Your health is our top priority, so everything you discuss with your counselor will be used to find a treatment plan that works, and will always be kept private. However, not all helplines are confidential. With that in mind, if you call a different line, we recommend you ask about their confidentiality policy before disclosing any information.

Can I Start the Treatment Process When Calling This Hotline?

Yes. If you are ready and willing to begin the detox process, calling our hotline is your first step. After answering the questions, if our specialist can verify your insurance coverage, you can be on your way to one of The Recovery Village treatment centers within the day.
