Utilizing Helpline for Opioid Dependence Treatment
The Center for Leading Edge Addiction Research or CLEAR clinic is offering a helpline as part of a research study for adults who are residents of the State of Virginia and would like to talk about their opioid use.
Do you have a prescription for pain management, a concern about your opioid use or just have some questions? If so, please call us at 1-877-OPIOIDS. Whether you need to maintain your opioid use for pain or want to stop using opioids, our trained staff can offer individualized information, resources and referrals to treatment in your area. We can also offer audio recordings with mindfulness and meditation exercises to help you manage any pain issues related to your opioid use.
Our goal of this study is to determine if offering a phone-based helpline is a useful tool for individuals trying to reduce their reliance on opioids to treat pain or those struggling with opioid use. This helpline is not meant to replace any counseling or therapy you may currently be using but can offer you additional assistance. Participants will be asked to complete surveys about their experiences with the helpline and anyone with questions is welcome to call for information.
All consultations are completely confidential and provided at no cost.
Call us at 1-877-674-6437 or contact us through the form (BELOW).
We look forward to speaking with you!
