Massachusetts Substance Abuse & Drug Addiction Hotlines

Massachusetts Addiction Hotlines

America has a severe addiction problem, and Massachusetts is no exception. Substance abuse is among the top health concerns in the state. This year, 17.46% of residents reported illicit drug use sometime during the last month, per the CDC. A total of 2,585 residents died from overdoses in 2021 alone. Data is not yet available for last year.

Unfortunately, addiction has a grip not just on Massachusetts, but on all of America. Fortunately, there is help. Below are three completely free resources for help with substance abuse available to residents of the Bay State. Addiction is a disease, and the cure begins with helping yourself. We aim to be part of that help.
