Opioid Helpline Study #21376

The UVA Center for Leading Edge Addiction Research or CLEAR clinic seeks adults ages 18 or older and residents of the State of Virginia who are being prescribed opioids for management of pain or are struggling with opioid use to participate in a helpline.  Our goal 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 who have a concern about their opioid use. We are offering telephone support, education and referrals to treatment.

The helpline involves a series of 4 weekly telephone calls, each lasting 30 to 45 minutes, including online assessments, individualized support and education.  Additional follow-up calls will be conducted at 1, 3 and 6 months.  All phone sessions are provided at no cost.

For more information and confidential screening, please contact us at 1-877-674-6437 or 434.243.0563 or uvaclear@virginia.edu
