Wisconsin Substance Abuse & Drug Addiction Hotlines

Wisconsin Addiction Hotlines

America has a severe addiction problem, and Wisconsin is no exception. Substance abuse is among the top health concerns in the state. This year, 11.16% of residents reported illicit drug use sometime during the last month, per the CDC. A total of 1,775 residents died from overdoses in 2021 alone. Data is not yet available for last year.

Unfortunately, addiction has a grip not just on Wisconsin, but on all of America. Fortunately, there is help.
