In a concerted effort to combat the growing opioid crisis that grips the nation, Anzen Health, in collaboration with leading health organizations, proudly unveils a groundbreaking toll-free helpline: 855-HOW-TO-QUIT-OPIOIDS. This initiative offers hope and support for the millions entangled in opioid addiction.

Michel May, founder of Anzen Health, sheds light on the harrowing reality that over 2.1 million Americans are battling opioid use disorder, with the disorder claiming a life every six minutes. The helpline introduces a novel approach to combat this issue, offering a lifeline of support and guidance, making it significantly easier for affected individuals to seek personalized advice and encouragement.

In the xf. By entering the imprint code from the opioid pill as phone extensions, individuals are linked to advisors who share similar experiences. This approach creates a supportive connection, allowing opportunities for empathy and understanding. Turning the pill codes into a way to reach out for help is an innovative use of dial pad mechanics, bridging those in need with helpful guidance.

May highlights the critical role of peer support in recovery, underscoring Anzen Health’s commitment to facilitating conversations that can pivot individuals from the brink of another life-changing decision. The helpline features a diverse group of over 30 individuals who have battled addiction to one of the 30 most common opioid pills. These advisors share their journey from addiction to recovery, offering invaluable insights and support to callers.

“Nothing is more powerful than stories of individuals who have crossed the threshold from addiction to recovery. 855-HOW-TO-QUIT-OPIOIDS serves as a platform for open expression, offering a judgment-free zone where callers can be heard and gently guided toward their next steps,” May states.

Beyond personal stories, the helpline also directs callers to vital resources, including emergency support through 988 and access to concrete treatment options via the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) National Helpline. To ensure the helpline reaches as many individuals as possible, 855-HOW-TO-QUIT-OPIOIDS is being promoted across the United States through strategic placements on billboards, out-of-home media, social media platforms, and partnerships with various media outlets.

May reiterates, “Our mission is to extend a helping hand to as many people as possible. With the support of our partners, we’re amplifying the visibility of this crucial initiative. We’re excited to see and hear this project’s impact and turn despair into hope and struggle into support for others.”

The hotline 855-HOW-TO-QUIT-OPIOIDS is available across all 50 states and operates 24/7, with plans for further enhancement soon.
