The Council on Substance Abuse-NCADD (COSA-NCADD) offers recovery support services to individuals with opioid use disorders (OUDs) and their families. Together with peers in recovery, treatment providers, and other community organizations, we strive to offer hope while meeting the specialized needs of those seeking help.
115 AMERICANS DIE EVERY DAY FROM AN OPIOID OVERDOSE.
An estimated 21 to 29% of patients prescribed opioids for chronic pain misuse them.
About 80% of people who use heroine started off by first misusing prescription opioids.
If you or someone you know needs help with opioid addiction, please call 1-877-HELP-4AL.
The helpline provides confidential assistance for those who need help themselves, and guidance for those seeking help for loved ones. When you call, you’ll be greeted by a friendly, compassionate peer-support specialist who has personal experience in recovery from a mental health or substance abuse issue. They are here to help you and will never judge you or your circumstances.
