In 2018, according to the CDC, providers in Arkansas wrote 93.5 opioid prescriptions per 100 residents. The national average is just over 50 prescriptions per resident. This translates to there being way more opioid pills just floating around Arkansas than in many other states. On top of this, nearly 1 in every 20 Arkansas residents live with a serious mental illness. We want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Natural 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.
The Arkansas Crisis Center
The ACC offers free and confidential counseling services (and more) to all Arkansas residents. As part of this service, there is a 24/7 hotline for either mental health or substance abuse needs, and the number is 1-888-274-7472.
National Rehab Hotline
Available around the clock, 365 days a year, the National Rehab Hotline is free and confidential. An accredited specialist will answer after a few short rings and be there to help you through a substance abuse or mental health crisis. Give them a call at 1-866-210-1303 today.
