EMERGENCY ADDICTION RESOURCES
- 911 – In the event of a life-threatening substance-related emergency like an overdose or violence, always call emergency services right away. Many U.S. states, including Texas and Oklahoma, employ Good Samaritan or medical amnesty laws, which help ensure that you will not be held responsible for possession of an illicit substance if you are seeking medical assistance. Your health and safety are always more important than potential legal trouble.
- 1-800-662-HELP (4357) – The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) offers this confidential, 24/7 hotline to help connect you with addiction treatment services in your area.
- 1-800-273-8255 – The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available 24/7 to help in the case of suicidal thoughts or actions, even while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
