Wendy Williams wants to help others in need.
A week after returning to her talk show following a lengthy health-related hiatus, the host announced Monday on The Wendy Williams Show that her family’s Hunter Foundation has partnered with T.R.U.S.T., an organization dedicated to building a bridge from treatment to long-term recovery, to launch a national resource hotline. 1-888-5HUNTER (1-888-548-6837) will provide resources to those suffering from drug addiction or substance abuse, their families and loved ones, or the general public to receive education and awareness information.
“The Hunter Foundation launched a 24-hour nationwide hotline to offer treatment resources to get help for you if you happen to be addicted to drugs and substance abusing,” Williams, 54, told viewers. “What you do is you call, and your call will be answered by specially-trained, certified recovery coaches. These people will provide you, should you want help, with referrals and treatment facilities. If that’s you, we’re here to help.”
