When you feel like you can’t manage your life because of substance use disorder, treatment can be a lifeline. But too often, people who could benefit from help don’t seek it because of misconceptions or misplaced fear. Making the first call for help can be intimidating for many reasons, causing people to delay or defer much-needed treatment.
“Some people may wonder if they really need help and many don’t know whom to call or what to expect when they do reach out,” says Mandy Hazel, BS, CADC, counselor and case manager for Centerstone. These unanswered questions can act as barriers to recovery, but Centerstone is dedicated to breaking down those barriers.
Do you need help?
Start by asking yourself the following questions:
If you answered “yes” to two or more of these questions, you could benefit from treatment.
What can you expect when you make the call?
Centerstone’s recovery specialists are understanding of your journey. To us, you are a person with an addiction, not an “addict.” Our recovery specialists know that substance use disorder is a mental health issue and will treat it as such, without any blaming or guilt trips. Our first priority is to help you reach the potential we see in you from the start.
When you reach out to Centerstone to get help, you can expect for a Centerstone staff member to guide you through sharing your history with substance use.
Where can you find treatment?
What kind of treatment do you need?
There are several levels of services available. Making the initial call to a treatment facility should involve an intake process that can guide you toward the right level.
These treatment services often go hand in hand. If you start in detox, you can transition into inpatient and/or outpatient services.
If you would like to get connected to treatment from Centerstone, please call 1-877-HOPE123 (1-877-467-3123). We can answer your questions and help you take the first steps toward recovery.
If you are in crisis, please call our crisis line, call 911 or visit the nearest emergency room.
