Partnership with Journey to Hope
Offering 24-Hour Warm Line for Easy Access to Addiction Information and Treatment Programs
With the overdose rate in Rhode Island on the rise, The Journey to Hope, Health & Healing, Inc. and United Way 2-1-1 in Rhode Island are taking action. The Journey and UWRI have partnered to provide individuals in need of treatment for opioid addiction, their families members, as well as first responders and medical providers, with quick and easy, around the clock access to a live Journey Recovery Information Specialist.
Callers simply dial 2-1-1 and are connected to UWRI 2-1-1’s certified Information Referral Specialist, trained by the licensed clinical team of The Journey, who will assess the needs of each caller and, if appropriate, warm transfer the caller to a Journey Recovery Information Specialist. The Journey Recovery Information Specialist will answer questions and arrange for swift access to treatment. The calls are free and translators are available to assist callers. All calls are kept confidential.
