One of the most important goals of SAMHSA is to ensure that anyone can find treatment for substance abuse and mental health issues in their local area.
SAMHSA's National Helpline offers 24-hour, free and confidential, information on substance use disorder issues and referral treatment, in English and Spanish, 800-662-HELP (4357); 800-487-4889 (TDD); http://www.samhsa.gov.
SAMHSA's Treatment Facility Locator provides a comprehensive listing of drug and alcohol treatment programs across the United States, http://findtreatment.samhsa.gov.
Call 800-273-TALK (8255) to be connected to a skilled, trained counselor at a crisis center in your area, anytime 24/7.
Recovery Month has a variety of resources and information available on many topics related to mental and substance use disorders, prevention, treatment, and recovery. The searchable database includes articles, news, reports, brochures, Road to Recovery television and radio programs, PSAs, Recovery Month Toolkit elements (including Targeted Outreach text), and other resources developed specifically by Recovery Month and their partners.
There are several resources to help you find local treatment centers, therapists, medication-assisted therapies, mutual aid groups on the Treatment and Help webpage or you can contact your Single State Agency for information on prevention, treatment, and recovery resources in your state.
A critical part of recovery is sharing one's story of recovery with others. Read or watch people's inspiring stories of recovery, or submit your own story.
