Opioid Text Program

VIA LINK provides a range of supports to people with opioid misuse. One of those efforts is an innovative texting tool.

Our Text Program

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 specialists.  Depending on the encounter the person may receive a series of sequenced follow up texts over several months. 


Teens who want opioid support and information can also text our Teen Crisis Text Line at 833-TXT-TEEN (833-898-8336).
