The Kentucky OAR Hotline is staffed by nurses and pharmacists nationally certified in toxicology. A service of the Kentucky Poison Control Center, we are available 24 hours a day – 7 days a week.
We can offer assistance with:
- Safe opioid prescribing
- Managing withdrawal
- Medication assisted therapy for opioid use disorder
Patients who have been displaced from their pain clinic through no fault of their own are at risk for withdrawal. It is important to bridge patients with appropriate therapy to allow them time to re-establish care. If you would like to speak with a pain medicine specialist for recommendations and assistance, please call us directly. Click here to read more about guidance for management of the displaced patient.
