First there’s the crash, then the lifelong impact.
Thankfully, MADD is just a phone call away to provide support for drunk and drugged driving victims. In 2011, MADD provided victim services to over 63,000 victims and survivors nationwide! That means serving one victim and survivor every eight minutes at no charge.
These services include grief support, help navigating the criminal justice systems and community referrals. Services are available 24 hours a day, every day of the year through the 1-877-MADD-HELP (1-877-623-3435) Victim Services Support Line. A helpline specialist takes care of the immediate needs of callers and then refers to a local community MADD advocate for ongoing support. The helpline is sometimes a lifeline for victims and survivors at their most vulnerable moments.
If you or someone you know is a drunk or drugged driving victim, please don’t hesitate to call if you need a compassionate ear. MADD helps survivors survive.
