For the last nine years, the number of opioid overdose deaths in Arizona has been rising. A startling 1,106 AZ residents died from overdoses in 2018. That’s over three a day. Furthermore, over 4.5% of state residents suffer from serious mental illness. We want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Grand Canyon State, and the last two are available nationally. If you or someone you love needs help, please call whichever hotline is most suitable, and please call today.
