The fentanyl, heroin, and opioid epidemic is the most pressing public health and safety challenge facing our state. With people from all walks of life in every corner of our state struggling with substance use disorder, it is important to know where to turn to for help. 

If you are experiencing an immediate medical emergency, please call 9-1-1 for assistance.

Below is a guide with resources on where to find help if you or a loved one is suffering from this epidemic (if you need additional help determining what resources are available, you can also call or visit one of my offices):

You can call the New Hampshire Statewide Addiction Crisis Line at 1-844-711-HELP (4357).

The line is toll free, confidential and open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Trained counselors are available to listen and provide help in taking next steps including finding treatment, shelters, support groups, and emergency services.

You can also email the hotline at hope@keystonehall.org.

Additionally, you can call 2-1-1 to be connected at no cost to information about critical health and human services available in your community.
