Virginia Substance Abuse & Drug Addiction Helplines

In Virginia, the challenge of substance abuse is a significant public health issue. According to the CDC, 9.46% of Virginians have used illegal drugs within the past month this year. In 2021, overdoses claimed the lives of 2,626 individuals in the state. Statistics for the previous year are still pending.

Addiction's hold extends beyond Virginia to encompass the entire nation. Help is available, however. Presented here are three resources at no cost for residents battling substance abuse in Old Dominion. Addiction is an illness, and taking the first step towards healing is self-assistance. Our goal is to support that journey.

Virginia Rehab Hotline

The Virginia Addiction Hotline offers round-the-clock support and is a confidential service at no cost for residents seeking help with addiction. You can reach out at (888) 515-2778 at any time to talk to an expert ready to assist you. For additional information and resources, visit the website. Assistance is available whenever you need it.

Community Services Boards (CSBs)

In Virginia, the Department of Behavioral Health & Developmental Services provides a detailed directory of CSBs, complete with contact information, accessible via their official portal. These boards are established to offer services addressing mental health conditions, substance abuse and addiction, and intellectual as well as developmental challenges for both adults and children. For additional details, you're encouraged to reach out directly to the department at 804-786-3921.


The REACH initiative is another program under the auspices of the DBHDS. It functions as a comprehensive crisis intervention service across the state. While it primarily assists individuals with developmental disabilities, any resident of Virginia can seek adult assistance by dialing 855-917-8278, or receive support for minors by calling 888-908-0486.
