Wendy Williams promotes nationwide hotline for substance abusers


Paras Griffin/Getty ImagesAfter recently checking herself into a sober house, Wendy Williams has debuted a new PSA promoting a nationwide hotline for substance abuse treatment.  

Her Hunter Foundation non-profit has partnered with the T.R.U.S.T. organization, which provides assistance to addicts.   

“The substance abuse will be taken care of,” she says in the PSA. “We will provide you with referrals for long or short-term treatment at facilities all around the world. Detox, rehab, sober living and outpatient centers everywhere. Nationwide.”  

“If you’re an addict or a substance abuser, don’t be ashamed,” she continues. “Help is here for you, or a family member, or a loved one. Call. Don’t be ashamed. There is hope. I’m living proof.” 

The hotline number is 1-888-5HUNTER. For more information, check out The Hunter Foundation website. 

Wendy has been very open about being a cocaine addict for nearly a decade early in her career. On March 19, she announced on her show that she was living in a sober house to combat her alcohol abuse.  

As rumors swirled last week about her husband Kevin Hunter having a baby with his mistress, there were reports that Williams had checked out of her sober house, and had to be treated at a local New York City hospital.
