Common Questions about Addiction Helplines

Some common questions about addiction helplines include the following:

  • Who works at an addiction helpline? Helpline employees are well-trained, knowledgeable and compassionate. They understand addiction issues and are non-judgmental. Some of them may be in recovery from addiction themselves.
  • What kinds of questions will helpline counselors answer? Helpline counselors will do their best to answer any questions you have about addiction, drug use and related topics. They can help you decide if you need treatment and if so what type of program will best meet your needs.
  • What if I can’t afford treatment? If you have health insurance, you may have coverage for addiction treatment. Counselors can check your insurance coverage at no cost or obligation. If you don’t have insurance, counselors will do their best to find a program that will fit your financial situation.
  • What if my loved one isn’t ready for treatment? If you are calling on behalf of a loved one, a helpline counselor can help you find treatment options for that individual, discuss the intervention process with you or help you find a professional interventionist that works with Atlanta residents.
  • What information will helpline employees need from me? Callers are likely to be asked about the nature and extent of the addiction issue. When people are calling on behalf of family members or friends it may not be possible to know all the details of the addiction, but helpline counselors understand this and will work with what information you do have.
  • When should I call a helpline? Many helplines are available around the clock, so they are ready to take your call at any time.
