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 Trazodone Hotline?

A trazodone hotline (or helpline) is, for many people, the first step in getting treatment for abuse. It’s a toll-free number that you can call to get information about rehab options for this substance. Some trazodone hotlines also offer the option to enroll in a treatment program during the same call, like The Recovery Village’s hotline. For your convenience, our free trazodone hotline is available 24/7 to offer assistance.

When Should I Call a Trazodone Helpline?

You should call a trazodone helpline if you or a loved one needs information about starting treatment for trazodone abuse. The person you speak with can provide valuable information on the dangers of trazodone while offering professional treatment options. However, if you need immediate assistance, such as for an overdose or other medical emergency, or if there’s an urgent safety concern, call 911. Local law enforcement officers and/or ambulatory services can be dispatched, if necessary.

If I Call, What Questions Will They Ask?

Before enrolling someone into a drug rehab program, a series of questions must first be asked. This will help you get the best, most individualized care that you or your loved one needs. Although no two trazodone hotlines are exactly alike, the following is a list of questions that are typically asked (especially if you call The Recovery Village):

  • Are you or someone else in need immediate medical attention (911) for trazodone abuse?
  • Are you currently seeking a trazodone treatment center or clinic?
  • Have you ever been diagnosed with PTSD?
  • Are there are any co-occurring disorders, such as an eating disorder or depression, present?
  • Can you describe the side effects that you have been experiencing as a result of trazodone abuse?

When I Call, Is the Conversation Confidential?

When contacting The Recovery Village, yes, your phone call is 100% confidential. We abide by the HIPAA Privacy Policy, so you can call with peace of mind.

Can I Start the Treatment Process When Calling This Hotline?

Some hotlines serve as only informational phone numbers, but The Recovery Village’s trazodone hotline is different. If you call us, we can enroll you in a treatment program at the same time of your call. We have centers throughout the country to treat virtually any substance use disorder, including trazodone use.
