After an extended hiatus to tend to her health, Wendy Williams returned to her daytime talk show last week and announced the formation of a substance abuse hotline. Now we know the gossip queen gets a lot of flack for being messy (it’s her job after all), but this is a move we can surely applaud.

The 24-hour hotline, accessible by dialing 1-888-5HUNTER, is an effort in partnership with T.R.U.S.T., an organization that helps individuals with substance abuse.
Ron Clinton, president of T.R.U.S.T., expressed gratitude for the opportunity to team up with Williams’ organization. “We are pleased to partner with the Hunter Foundation to spread the message that there is her hope and recovery can work. We are grateful to the Hunter family for undertaking this initiative and asking for T.R.U.S.T. to facilitate this life-saving effort.”
Clinton added, “With over 70,000 overdose deaths in the past year, we can make an impact together to combat this crisis through awareness and treatment.”
On standby is a team of certified recovery coaches who will pair callers up with treatment facilities including detox and rehabilitation centers.
Glad to see Wendy back and ready to help those in need.
