West Virginia Sober Living creates resource hotline

West Virginia Sober Living employs peer recovery coaches to connect people with substance use disorders to vital services, including access to social services and referrals to health care providers.

During this time of crisis, WVSL would like to extend this help to all members of the community.

West Virginia Sober Living has created a hotline to help residents access important services during the coronavirus outbreak.

Some of the services WVSL can provide include linkages to food banks, initial online unemployment filing, lunch programs for children, DHHR services (SNAP benefits and Medicaid), services for those experiencing homelessness, or help finding COVID-19 testing sites.

Coaches will be available to help beginning April 6, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday, at 304-602-2017.

These calls will be kept confidential.

If you or a loved one is having trouble finding connections, experiencing technology barriers or just need someone to talk with about your fears, WVSL is available to help.
