According to the state government website, a whopping 80% of all recent poisoning incidents in Michigan have involved substance abuse. That is indeed higher than the national average. So too was the number of fatal overdoses that occurred in Michigan in 2018, which was more than seven every single day for a total count of 2,591. Furthermore, the Citizens Research Council of Michigan has concluded that access to mental health treatment services is limited due to a shortage of professionals. We want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Wolverine 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.
Just last year, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services launched the “warmline” as the state is calling it. Residents can call 1-888-733-7753 seven days a week, between 10:00AM and 2:00AM. A certified peer support specialist will take your call.
