West Virginia's Prescription Drug Abuse Helpline Receives New Management
Date:1/5/2012

ne and its resources, as well as support outreach to communities across the state about the quitline. 

About $70,000 remains from the initial court settlement, which should allow continued operation of the line for the next several months with limited outreach. 

The WVU School of Medicine through the Department of Community Medicine will be involved in the future of the West Virginia Prescription Drug Abuse Quitline. That involvement will occur through ongoing data management and analysis to evaluate the success of the project and collect data on individuals affected by prescription drug abuse. The data will be published periodically in an effort to improve services for this at-risk population.

The West Virginia Prescription Drug Abuse Quitline is a confidential resource for prescription drug abusers and their family members. The services of the quitline include: referral to treatment centers, setting appointments at help centers, self-help materials, and listening to callers' issue. All quitline educators are qualified and trained in addiction and recovery services.

More information on the West Virginia Prescription Drug Abuse Quitline is available online at www.wvrxabuse.org or by phone at 1-866-987-8488.
