Crisis Clinic launches a redesign of the Washington Recovery Help Line website, warecoveryhelpline.org.

The new website offers visitors a cleaner, up-to-date aesthetic with more engaging content and a clearer path for those who are looking for help and support with regards to substance use disorder, mental health challenges and problem gambling.

Substance use disorder is growing throughout the country, with a rise in opiate dependence and opiate-related deaths. According to the University of Washington Alcohol and Drug Abuse Institute, Washington state has seen a 72 percent increase in deaths attributed to any opioid between 2002-2004 and 2014-2016.

As more people are impacted by substance abuse – individuals, loved ones, as well as professionals are more often seeking help for those experiencing these challenges. The Washington Recovery Help Line consequently is seeing more traffic. In a greater effort to meet visitors where they are, the website was overhauled and simplified to ease the research process for people impacted by substance use disorder, mental health challenges and problem gambling. Visitors can now find the most frequently needed information on resources for their needs by navigating to the website. For specific questions and concerns, or for emotional support, specialists are available by phone 24/7, and by chat during high traffic hours specified on the website.

The Washington Recovery Help Line, a program of Crisis Clinic, is an anonymous and confidential 24-hour help line that provides crisis intervention and referral services for Washington residents. Professionally-trained volunteers and staff are available to provide emotional support and offer local treatment resources for substance abuse, problem gambling and mental health, as well as to other community services.

If you or someone you love is experiencing substance abuse disorder, mental health challenges, or problem gambling or may be experiencing thoughts of suicide, call 1-866-789-1511.
