Spice, K2, and Black Mamba are all names for synthetic cannabinoids often referred to as “fake weed.” This psychoactive substance was created to mimic the effects of the THC in marijuana, but in reality, is much more toxic than the illegal plant. K2 is a dangerous blend of dried up herbs sprayed with a random amount of man-made cannabinoids — toxic chemicals often labeled “not for human consumption.” Whether you smoke it, burn it as incense or brew it in tea, Spice and K2 are highly variable in potency and not at all-natural.

With continued usage of synthetic marijuana comes an increased tolerance, which can lead to addiction and a life-threatening physical and psychological dependency.

What Is a Spice Hotline?

A Spice or K2 hotline is your direct line to help and healing. The Recovery Village’s Spice helpline is full of addiction specialists who will talk with you one-on-one, answer your questions, and connect you with the right treatment option for your needs. It is free, confidential, and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

When Should I Call a K2 Spice Hotline?

This free hotline can get you the detox and inpatient care you need to kick synthetic cannabinoids for good, but it cannot provide emergency services. If you are in immediate danger involving Spice or K2, call 911 immediately.

K2 overdose can occur after one use. Call 911 right away if you notice these overdose signs:

  • Heart attack
  • Hallucinations
  • Loss of control
  • Paranoia
  • Psychotic episodes
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Seizures or stroke
  • Tremors
  • Vomiting
  • Coma

Outside of a life-threatening situation, call our hotline to get started with professional rehab care. It takes more than willpower to break the bonds of K2 addiction, and we’re here to help you find life beyond Spice.

What Information Do I Need to Provide When I Call This Hotline?

When you call our Spice 24-hour hotline, an intake coordinator will ask you a series of questions to get a feel for your situation and to determine which treatment program best fits your needs. The line is completely confidential, and you can provide as much or as little information as you want. However, the more you tell us, the more we can help.

Questions asked may include:

  • How long have you been using Spice/K2?
  • How much Spice or K2 do you use per day?
  • Do you or any family members struggle with addiction?
  • Have you ever experienced any co-occurring disorders (addiction alongside a mental illness like depression or anxiety)?
  • Are you ready and willing to seek treatment?

Will My Phone Call Be Confidential?

Absolutely. We understand your need for privacy and ensure your complete anonymity is always maintained — from your first call to the final step of treatment. When you call The Recovery Village’s K2 hotline, you can rest assured that everything you discuss stays between you and your intake coordinator.

Can I Start the Treatment Process When Calling This Hotline?

Yes. Calling our hotline is the first step toward drug-free living. After an intake questionnaire and insurance verification, you may be able to start inpatient treatment at The Recovery Village within a few hours of your call. Your health is our first priority, and we’re dedicated to your recovery. When you’re ready to break free from K2 or Spice, we’re here for you.
