If you are In Crisis and Need Immediate Help
If you are in immediate danger or thinking about harming yourself, tell someone who can help you right away: Call Your Doctor's Office - Call 911 for emergency service - Go to the nearest hospital emergency room. Ask a family member or friend to help you reach out for help or take you to the hospital.

If you have a Family Member or Friend in Crisis

NCADD knows that more than 23 million people over the age of 12 are addicted to alcohol and drugs - almost 1 in 10 people. Since addiction occurs in the community where you and your loved ones live, NCADD has a National Network of Affiliates across the United States.
The use of alcohol and drugs by a friend or family member can leave us with many unanswered questions, unable to understand what is happening and feeling like you are living on an emotional roller-coaster.
