As substance abusers face growing upheaval, lost employment, disappearing AA meetings, and social isolation, the State of Vermont is publishing contact information for drug and alcohol addiction sufferers who want help.
“VTHelplink features a call center of trained staff and clinicians. Callers can get information, referrals, resources and educational materials on substance use for themselves, family and friends, or on behalf of clients. Also at VTHelplink.org is an online screening tool that Vermonters can use to learn about treatment options that meet their needs. People can also securely chat online with call center staff through the website. “These are more than simply difficult times, and we have no more important a mission than to do everything we can to create an infrastructure that bridges the challenges we face during this pandemic. VTHelplink is key resource for anyone who needs or wants to get treatment and succeed in their recovery,” said Dr. Levine. “We are all in this together, and we will persevere.” Those in need can also reach VTHelplink by dialing 802-565-LINK (5465).
