On May 11th, 2017, Columbia Pathways to Recovery, in partnership with the Chatham Cares 4 U PAARI program (Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative), launched a recovery helpline. The helpline, which can be reached by calling 877-HOPE-365 (877-467-3365) offers the following services:
- Connecting with the Chatham Cares 4 U program
We are not a crisis hotline. If you are in a crisis situation, you should call the Columbia-Greene Mobile Crisis Assessment Team (MCAT) at 518-943-5555. They operate 12pm – 8pm / 7 days a week. If you have a medical emergency, you should dial 9-1-1 immediately.
Our Recovery Helpline operates from 9am to 9pm 7 days a week. It is staffed by trained volunteers. Most have some type of experience with the recovery community; either from personal experience or with a loved one. Some of the volunteers are also Community Angels with the Chatham Cares 4 U program. They have probably been through some of the same experiences you are facing and have had the same questions that you may be looking for answers to. We’re here to help and to provide hope.
Everyone deserves to find the path to recovery that works for them. There is help and there IS hope in recovery.
If you are interested in learning more about volunteering for our recovery helpline, please send us an email and we’ll send the information right out to you.
