The Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services launched a new toll-free number 1-800-563-4086 to help connect residents seeking treatment services for an opioid addiction to local walk-in assessment centers.
Walk-in centers across the state are always available to provide an evaluation or referral, and encourage those in need of treatment to reach out when they feel they are ready to do so. Individual courses of treatment and services will be planned according to specific needs and eligibility. Centers work directly with patients and insurance companies to determine what works best for them, and resolve any challenges that may stand in the way of them and their treatment.
