Worcester County Safe Station Implements Warmline

If you (or someone you know) are seeking support related to the use of a substance, you DO NOT need to leave home to get help. Our Safe Station Program within the Worcester County Health Department implemented a warmline which is intended to act as phone support for individuals struggling and need a person to listen. While options are reduced, sometimes it helps to just have someone on the other end who has been there. We will do our best to link you with services once they return to the new normal. Keep reading for hours of operation and the contact information.
