Best answer:

Answer by Ed
Gosh, there are hundreds of different support groups.
WHO SEEKS the help for themselves (the abuser, a son/daughter, a parent, or a friend, an adult son/daughter still living with bad memories and ways of thinking from growing up with a drug abuser in the same family, or ?)?
Is THE DRUG ABUSER a kid, an adult, a father/mother, a physician, nurse, or ?
Do you know WHAT TYPE OF DRUG is the person abusing? Marijuana, Cocaine, Pills, or ?
Such info would be key to checking on the availability of a local helpline.

In terms of a possibly helpful helpline…
First, you could try just dialing 211 when you get your dialtone.That might work.
Then try during the week the Federal Helpline 800-729-6686.
Natl Council on Alcoholism/Drug 800-622-2255.

What STATE do you live in? That would probably be the BEST helpline, and it should be a 24 hour a day one.

If a youth, the very best ones available nationally 24hrs a day are…
The NiineLine (youth crisis) 800- 999-9999
Girl’s/Boy’s Town (youth crisis) 800- 448-3000.

Take good care.
