Rhode Island Substance Abuse Hotlines: 24-Hour Addiction Helplines

Last Updated: March 11, 2024

Rhode Island may be one of the smallest states in the United States, but the drugs and alcohol problem is significant. This makes substance abuse a very pertinent concern in Rhode Island. To respond to this, the state and national governments and non-profit organizations have put in place mechanisms including free hotlines numbers to combat the problem.

Hope & Recovery Support Line

The hope and recovery support line is a  joint effort by RI Department of Health (RIDOH), Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo’s Overdose Prevention and Intervention Task Force, and Developmental Disabilities and Hospitals (BHDDH) and RI Department of Behavioral Healthcare. The counselors on the 401-942-STOP (401-942-7867) drug help hotline, are licensed in chemical dependency and are available 24/7 in both English and Spanish languages.

Rhode Island Smoker Helpline

The Rhode Island drug abuse hotline for people who want to quit smoking is the 24/7 toll-free number 1-800-QUIT-NOW. It connects the victims with specialists for multi-sessions telephone counseling, referrals, and self-help tools. With this level of support, anyone can quit for good. Victim’s information is also held private and confidential.

Teen Challenge Rhode Island Hopeline

This is a faith-based free drug counseling helpline that supports teens struggling with substance abuse and other life controlling problems. The operation hours for the 1-855-404-HOPE hotline are from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday to Friday.

Getting real-time support through abuse hotlines manned by addiction recovery experts can help victims navigate through the challenges of substance abuse and related conditions. This can help point them to the path to complete recovery in Rhode Island addiction rehabs.

A treatment center will attempt to verify your health insurance benefits and/or necessary authorizations on your behalf. Please note, this is only a quote of benefits and/or authorization. We cannot guarantee payment or verification eligibility as conveyed by your health insurance provider will be accurate and complete. Payment of benefits are subject to all terms, conditions, limitations, and exclusions of the member’s contract at time of service. Your health insurance company will only pay for services that it determines to be “reasonable and necessary.” The treatment center will make every effort to have all services preauthorized by your health insurance company. If your health insurance company determines that a particular service is not reasonable and necessary, or that a particular service is not covered under your plan, your insurer will deny payment for that service and it will become your responsibility.
