It’s never too soon to reach out. In fact, early intervention often helps head off worsening trouble and could prevent a tragedy.

Where to Start

1. Learn more.

If you’re not sure about symptoms, risks, treatment options, and more, visit samhsa.gov. Call Colorado Crisis Services at 844-493-8255 (or text them at 38255) to talk to a trained counselor about the problems you’re seeing.

2. Talk to the person you care about.

Express your concern. “I care about you and want you to get help” is a positive message. Try to avoid blaming and arguing. Offer to help them make an appointment with a counselor, primary-care provider or clinic.

3. Screening comes next.

Physicians, nurses, social workers, substance use disorder counselors and other healthcare professionals are trained to assess whether your loved one has a substance use disorder, how severe it is, and how to help.

NOTE: If this is an emergency, call 911 immediately.
