Drug addiction helplineDrug addiction isolates Anchorage addicts. The drug addict often distances himself from family and friends, a process that makes it difficult to broach the topic when the crisis comes. A helpline is often the best, easiest and most effective way to begin the healing process for Anchorage residents. Helplines offer the following benefits:

  • Talking on our helpline is secure. You can trust the person to be confidential about everything you say.
  • You can control the situation. When you call the helpline, you have control over what you say. While the rehab process will probably involve a willingness to relinquish some control, at this stage you can make the call knowing that there is some measure of control.
  • Most importantly, making use of the helpline is a way to communicate and connect, which is a vital part of the healing process and, indeed, of a normal and rich human life.

How Addiction Helplines Work

When you call an addiction helpline, you do not need to do anything except to state your situation in your own words, simply and directly. If you are seeking information, state that need. If you feel panicked and need to talk to someone, express that. Of course, if the situation is extreme or there is a real health danger to you or to someone else, call 911. If you are calling on behalf of a loved one and would like information on rehab, let us know. Any Anchorage resident can call an addiction helpline; you do not have to be an addict to talk to an addiction counselor.

When you dial the number, you can expect someone who will want to help. The staff person will, of course, need to get specific information from you in order to know how best to help you (or someone you know who has a drug problem). The following are some things you can expect during the call:

  • Help in deciding if you need detox, rehab, or counseling.
  • Information about rehab treatment centers.
  • Information about kinds of treatment.
  • General guidance about insurance matters.
  • Suggestions for immediate and practical steps toward setting up an intervention.
