Facilitated by Houston Drug and Action Council (HODAC), HELPLINE Georgia provides free, confidential, telephone substance abuse crisis intervention, information and referral resources to any individual in the state of Georgia.
The Helpline is a confidential first step for families, friends, employers or the addicted individual.
Trained, caring telephone information specialists are available 24-hours a day, seven days a week to provide information about addictive disease, alcohol and other drugs; treatment options; locations of treatment facilities and self-help organizations, DUI Risk Reduction programs, drug laws, etc.
The Helpline provides people with information about services that otherwise may be unknown to them. Some people may be unable to obtain the service they need, not because they do not know about it or because it is non-existent, but because they are unable to state their case properly, or are unable to identify their problem clearly. In those cases, the Helpline provide guidance, suggestions about how to ask for the help and/or service they need, or how to word their request or problem so service providers can understand what is needed. 800 statewide substance abuse prevention and treatment providers are listed in the helpline’s database.
