Wendy Williams has released a new public service announcement, offering assistance to individuals suffering from drug addiction or substance abuse.
In the new clip, the daytime talk show host is seated in her purple chair where she presents viewers with the helpline for The Hunter Foundation, which her family founded — 1-888-5-hunter.
"The calls are being answered by specially-trained, certified recovery coaches," she said of the hotline. "They’re very smart. They conduct screenings to your needs. The substance abuse will be taken care of. We will provide you referrals for long or short-term treatment at facilities all around the world — detox, rehab, sober living and out-patient centers."
