Nebraska Addiction Hotlines
America has a severe addiction problem, and Nebraska is no exception. Substance abuse is among the top health concerns in the state. This year, 9.56% of residents reported illicit drug use sometime during the last month, per the CDC. A total of 214 residents died from overdoses in 2021 alone. Data is not yet available for last year.
Unfortunately, addiction has a grip not just on Nebraska, but on all of America. Fortunately, there is help.
