New addictions helpline launched in Manitoba
Provides information on addictions services and resources in one place
"When someone is ready to deal with an addiction, we want it to be as straightforward as possible to find the most appropriate supports and services," Healthy Living and Seniors Minister Deanne Crothers said Tuesday at the launch of the Manitoba Addictions Helpline.
"There is now an easy and confidential way to find out about the resources available."
The new helpline, which will be managed by the Addictions Foundation of Manitoba (AFM), offers:
- A toll-free line for information and support.
- A no-appointment-needed, walk-in option located at River Point Centre.
- A website with up-to-date information on services available and how services can be accessed.
- An online self-screening tool to help guide people to the most appropriate service to meet their needs.
The toll-free addictions helpline is 1-855-662-6605.
