Texas was home to more than 3,000 fatal drug overdoses in 2018 alone. That’s over eight people daily. Furthermore, according to Mental Health America, last year Texas was second-to-last in a national ranking of states with access to mental health care. This comes as heavy news when you add the fact that nearly three-quarters of Texans suffering from any form of mental illness do not receive any care at all. We want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Lone Star 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.
Texas Substance Abuse Helpline
The TSAH is an independent operation and offers a 24/7 helpline for residents who need any kind of support for any kind of crisis. The phone number is 1-866-971-2658.
The Texas Department of Health and Human Services offers a county-based webpage that lists telephone numbers for facilities well-equipped to handle any mental health or substance abuse need.
National Rehab Hotline
Available around the clock, 365 days a year, the National Rehab Hotline is free and confidential. An accredited specialist will answer after a few short rings and be there to help you through a substance abuse or mental health crisis. Give them a call at 1-866-210-1303 today.
