If you or someone you care about is struggling with heroin or prescription painkillers, help is available.
In the greater St. Louis area, the National Council on Alcoholism & Drug Abuse (NCADA) - St. Louis Area can perform an assessment, assist with referrals or simply provide information and answers you might need.
We encourage you to contact NCADA in either of the following ways:
Speak with an NCADA counselor by phone...
Call 314.962.3456 and ask to speak with a counselor.
You may also contact NCADA confidentially through the Ask A Counselor Service (click here to access). An NCADA counselor will generally be able to respond to your questions within 24 hours during the week, usually much sooner, depending on when the question is received. No tracking of email addresses or record-keeping, other than number and type of calls, will be kept.
There is no charge for either of these services. Counselors are available Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm.
