Opioid Text Program
VIA LINK provides a range of supports to people with opioid misuse. One of those efforts is an innovative texting tool.
When someone texts “Opioid” to 898211 they are guided through a series of questions to assess what information and resources is best for them. This can include information about overdose reversal medication, treatment options and signs of overdose. During the exchange, you may opt to text with a live specialist at anytime or call one of our specialist. Depending on the encounter the person may receive a series of sequenced follow up texts over several months.
