About the Behavioral Health Helpline

If you are experiencing symptoms of a mental health disorder or struggling with addiction concerns, help is available. Acadia Healthcare offers a national behavioral health helpline that provides 24/7 crisis support to anyone across the country.

When you call Acadia Healthcare’s crisis helpline toll-free at 1-833-TREATBH (873-2824), you will talk to a crisis counselor who will connect you with treatment options that can best meet your needs. While talking with the experienced hotline counselor, they might refer you to a nearby treatment center or have a first responder sent directly to your home.

Please note that if you are experiencing a medical emergency, it is crucial that you call 911 before contacting the Acadia Healthcare mental health helpline.

At Acadia Healthcare, we understand how frightening it can be when symptoms of a mental health disorder or addiction feel out of control. In situations like these, you may not know where to turn for help. The behavioral health counselors who run our crisis line will treat you with compassion and respect as they help you navigate how to handle what you are experiencing.

Telehealth Crisis Assessments

When you are in a state of crisis, it is essential that you get support that meets you where you are. When you call Acadia Healthcare’s behavioral health hotline, one of our experienced counselors will walk you through an assessment so that they can gain an understanding of what your immediate needs are.

Throughout the assessment process, you’ll talk to the crisis counselor about what led you to pick up the phone and call our behavioral health hotline. Topics you may be asked to discuss include:

  • What kind of symptoms you are experiencing
  • How severe those symptoms are
  • The effect those symptoms are having
  • Information about your medical history
  • Any past mental health or addiction treatment

The information you provide to the helpline counselor during your crisis assessment will help them identify the most beneficial treatment options to connect you with. Our goal is to help every person who contacts our behavioral health crisis line get the mental health or addiction treatment services they need no matter where they are located.
