TV Host Wendy Williams Hunter, along with The Hunter Foundation. has entered in a partnership with T.R.U.S.T. to launch a national hotline for those who are suffering from drug or substance abuse. The line is accessible at 1-888-5HUNTER (1-888-548-6837) and provides resources to those in need along with their families, loved ones and the general public who want access to the information.

The line will be available for 24 hours a day and is staffed by trained Certified Recovery Coaches that can refer callers to facilities that can assist in their treatment.

“We must all come together to respond to this crisis of addiction and substance abuse. Everyone is at risk from the inner cities to more affluent communities. My family and I are very proud to partner with T.R.U.S.T. to get people the help that they so desperately need, especially if they or their families have given up hope. There is hope,” says Wendy Williams Hunter, co-Founder of The Hunter Foundation.

“We are pleased to partner with The Hunter Foundation to help spread the message that there is hope and recovery can work! With over 70,000 overdose deaths in the past year, we can make an impact together to combat this crisis through awareness and treatment. We are grateful to the Hunter family for undertaking this initiative and for asking T.R.U.S.T. to facilitate this life-saving effort,” adds Ron Clinton, President of T.R.U.S.T.
