Need to speak with one of our confidential counselors?

  • Click here and answer a few questions. Your request for assistance will be referred to one of our counselors (April-Autumn) and they will reply to you within 24 hours. If this is an emergency and you need immediate medical attention, you should call 911. If you do not hear from a counselor and you are concerned, please call 919-970-2108. Be aware that this is a pager. Please listen to the instructions carefully. You will be directed to either enter your return phone number so the counselor can call you back, or you will be directed to call the counselor's cell phone directly and that number will be provided to you. We are here to help you!
