Rensselaer County Recovery Helpline


Do you need help with substance use issues? Are you interested in volunteering for the helpline? The Rensselaer County Recovery Helpline offers information, local resources, and referrals for individuals and their families regarding substance use issues. The toll-free line is available 7 days a week from 9am-9pm. Each volunteer chooses shifts of 4 hours at a time to be on-call. When someone calls the number, a volunteer answers on their own smartphone, and can enter information to a database on their own computer, allowing for easy and quick access to resources. The information is sent to one of the 9 leaders, who will then assist the caller. If you or someone you know needs information, resources, or a referral for a substance use problem, call 1-833-467-3123. For more information, or if you are interested in volunteering, contact

Run Once


Get your snow boots;

I’ll help you put them on.

I’ll get them, but

I can put them on.

You better switch them around;

They’ll be on the wrong feet.

They look right……..

OK, fine…I’ll switch them.

Now they are right;

Get your feet in them.

I’m trying, but

They won’t go in.

Let me unhook

Those Velcro straps for you.

Got both feet in, but

I can’t hook the straps.

Here, I’ll do it for you,

And tuck your snow pants in, too.

Now, I can’t wait

To tell Grandma….

Tell Grandma….

Tell her what…??

That I put my boots on,

All By Myself !!!
