Our free & confidential 24-hour inhalants hotline for family members, friends, and those with inhalant addiction and abuse.

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 an Inhalants Hotline?

An inhalants hotline is a resource for you to turn to if you need help for an inhalant addiction or have questions about drugs or household items. When you call The Recovery Village’s inhalant helpline, you’ll speak with a compassionate addiction specialist who can help you understand your addiction and move toward drug-free living.

When Should I Call an Inhalants Hotline?

Our hotline can connect you with detox and inpatient treatment, but cannot provide emergency services. If you or someone you know is in a life or death situation, you need to call 911 immediately. Inhalant overdose is called “sudden sniffing death” and can cause heart failure — call for first responders if you see any of the symptoms below in a loved one.

While “huffing” or “bagging” or snorting inhalants may give you a temporary high, getting high over time can lead to serious health issues. Before this drug usage turns into a substance use disorder call our free inhalant hotline. It’s never too late to turn over a new leaf, and our caring counselors can connect you with expert care and treatment options that work.

If I Call, What Questions Will They Ask?

When you call our  24-hour helpline, our counselors will ask you a series of questions to better understand your current situation and determine which method of treatment matches your needs. How much you explain is up to you, but the more information you can provide, the more we can help. Everything discussed is completely confidential. Your intake coordinator may ask:

  • Are you in immediate or life-threatening danger because of your inhalant usage?
  • Are inhalants the only drug you use? What else do you struggle with?
  • How many times do you use inhalants per day?
  • Do you suffer from co-occurring disorders like depression or anxiety?
  • Have you ever been to a treatment program before?

When I Call, Is the Conversation Confidential?

Your call to our helpline is always completely confidential. However, not all hotlines guarantee privacy, so be sure to ask prior to discussing your situation. When you reach out to The Recovery Village, you can rest assured that everything you talk about remains between you and your counselor.

Can I Start the Treatment Process When Calling This Hotline?

Absolutely. Your health is our first priority, and we will do everything we can to get you into the right program within a day of your call. A questionnaire and an insurance verification are required, but after that, you’ll be well on your way to The Recovery Village in no time. When you’re ready to live drug-free, we’re ready to help you get there.
