OARLine: Opioid Assistance + Referral Line for Arizona Providers: 1-888-688-4222
More than two Arizonans die every day from an opioid overdose. The Arizona Department of Health Services recognizes that there are many patients at risk for an overdose – and those with complex high-impact chronic pain, on multiple medications, or struggling with opioid use disorder can be challenging for providers to manage.
Arizona has launched one of the nation’s first 24/7 hotlines providing free, real-time consultations for clinicians with complex patients with pain and opioid use disorders, staffed by experts at the Poison and Drug Information Centers in Arizona.
Patients taking high numbers of morphine milligram equivalents (MME)
Consistent with Poison Control protocols, these consultations will provide tailored, evidence-based (see Arizona Prescribing Guidelines 2018) real-time and follow-up services.
