Get Help Immediately

Before we begin, we need to ensure your safety. The moment when a person decides to seek treatment for an addiction is often accompanied by great distress. This can be a very emotional moment. If you are experiencing suicidal thoughts or feel you may act on a desire to hurt someone else, please call 911 immediately and ask to be transferred to the nearest crisis center. Once you are feeling better, staff at the center will likely give you a referral to substance abuse treatment directly. If not, please feel free to return to this site for assistance with finding an appropriate referral.
