Worcester County partners with 2-1-1 Maryland to assist with addiction

The 2-1-1 Maryland Hotline is open 24-hours a day and now it's available locally through the Worcester County Health Department.

When you dial 2-1-1, residents have access to services such as peer recovery support and access to treatment.

Life Crisis answers all the 2-1-1 calls. They have a partnership with the Worcester Health Department since they have a 24/7 hotline and they are funded through United Way for 2-1-1. 

This support network was created to make it faster and easier to connect residents to essential services.

You can call 2-1-1 at any time to receive information about addiction and mental health services.

A trained staff member will connect you to a specialist.

This is a core element on behalf of the Heroin Opioid Community Response plan released by the Health Department.
