Help for Opioid Abuse

opiodsAs many of you know, the use and abuse of prescription painkillers ("opioids") in America has become a serious problem over the last several years, and sometimes that abuse leads to addictions and overdoses.

The Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services has announced a new, toll-free number connecting residents seeking treatment and services for an opioid addiction to local walk-in assessment centers.

Residents will now be able to call 1-800-563-4086, 24 hours a day, to connect them or a loved one to a walk-in assessment center in their area.

Callers will be directed to a walk-in assessment center in their area. In addition, trained staff will follow up with a phone call to callers in order to determine if they were able to connect to necessary services and problem-solve any barriers they may have encountered.
