The OAR Line provides 24-hour help with opioids for families, individuals, and medical providers

2 Min Read

People who use opioids, their loved ones, and the health care professionals treating them need multiple layers of support as we continue the fight against the ongoing opioid overdose epidemic.

The Opioid Assistance and Referral Line, or OAR Line, is here to help everyone impacted by opioids. Medical experts offer patients, providers, and family members free opioid information, resources, and referrals 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Services are also available in an individual’s preferred language.

The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) is proud to close out National Poison Prevention Week by highlighting the OAR Line. Every year National Poison Prevention Week is recognized to raise awareness about poisoning, reduce unintentional poisonings, and promote poison prevention nationwide.

For the public: People needing help with opioid use or their loved ones can speak with the OAR Line’s team of licensed nurses and pharmacists and get connected to care. The OAR Line is free and confidential and is there to provide answers to questions and  concerns, at any time about opioid use. 

For health care providers: Health care providers including certified nurses, pharmacists, and physicians are available 24/7 every day of the year for real-time consultation about patient care, including chronic pain, drug interactions, opioid withdrawal, and medication assisted treatment.
