North Carolina Mental Health and Substance Abuse Hotlines

In 2018, only twelve US states had fatal drug overdoses totaling more than 2,200 and North Carolina was one of them. Making matters worse, the state was eight-to-last among the states according to Mental Health America for total access to mental health care. There is clearly a problem here, and we want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Tar Heel 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.
