Opiate Hotline

352.771.2700  24/7, Toll-Free, Confidential

Opiates — a wide-ranging class of highly addictive drugs, such as fentanyl, codeine, morphine, heroin and opium — are some of the most dangerous substances consumed today. If you’ve found that you or someone you love is in the grips of opiate dependence, the best thing to do is find an opiate addiction hotline that can connect you to the help you need. Reaching out may feel scary, but it’s the only way that you can begin the recovery process. We hope these answers to some of the questions you may be asking yourself can make this process easier.

What Is an Opiate Hotline?

An opiate hotline provides struggling addicts and the people who love them with free and confidential opiate addiction help. The Recovery Village’s 24/7 opiate hotline can help you explore treatment options and get you started on the road to healing.

When Should I Call an Opiate Hotline?

Opiate hotlines are meant for people seeking recovery options, not for those in life-or-death situations. If you or someone you know is overdosing or in the middle of a life-threatening situation, dial 911 immediately. These local resources can take immediate action and intervene quickly.

If there is no immediate life-or-death situation, you should reach out to an opiate helpline if you are seeking opiate addiction help for you or someone you love. The Recovery Village’s opiate hotline operators can help you explore possible courses of action, and begin the enrollment process for treatment at one of our state-of-the-art facilities. Our number also acts as an opiate withdrawal hotline, where those struggling through opioid detox can arrange to undergo medical detox in one of our facilities. National opiate hotlines are also available to address more broad opiate questions and concerns.

What Questions Will I Be Asked When I Call an Opiate Helpline?

While the questions asked by operators at each opiate hotline are a little different, they generally center around assessing the affected individual’s immediate health and well-being. Once it has been established that urgent medical help is not needed, the operator will try to get a better understanding of the unique situation you or the individual you are calling on behalf of is facing.

Possible questions may include:

  • Is the addicted individual in a situation where they could do harm to themselves or others?
  • Does the addicted individual have other substance dependencies or co-occurring disorders?
  • If the addicted individual is interested in seeking treatment, what is their attitude toward treatment?
  • Are the programs and services offered at The Recovery Village a good fit for the addicted individual’s unique needs?

When I call, Is the conversation confidential?

The Recovery Village’s opiate hotline receives calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All of the content of these calls is 100 percent confidential. We understand that recovery begins with trust, and we intend to keep your trust in us from admission to aftercare.

Can I Start the Opiate Rehab, Detox or Recovery Process at the Time of My Call?

While other hotlines are meant to provide emergency help or broad guidance, our opiate hotline at The Recovery Village is the first step toward a full continuum of addiction rehabilitation. During your call, you can begin the admissions process and start a recovery program at one of our many specialized facilities within a matter of hours.
