According to Kaiser Family Foundation research, in 2018 Rhode Island had a fatal drug overdose rate of over 30 people per 100,000. The national average was around 20. Furthermore, the same year, almost half of Rhode Island residents suffering from some form of mental illness did not receive treatment. More than half of these people simply couldn’t afford it. We want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Ocean 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.
