Vision & Mission


To end disease and death from poisons and overdoses in our community.


Collaboration – We work with hospitals, public health officials, and community partners to share information and education about poisonings and poison prevention.

Community – Our poison center serves and advocates for all members of our community with respect, dignity, and privacy.

Innovation – We use education, research, technology, and state-of-the-art resources to respond to poisoning and drug overdose emergencies in our communities.

Prevention – We help keep our community safe by providing tools and resources to empower everyone to prevent poisonings.

Quality – Through the 24/7 poison helpline, 1-800-222-1222, our experts help callers to avoid unnecessary health care visits and to get life-saving treatments when needed. Our fast, free, confidential information helps reduce poison harms and decrease health care costs in our communities.


Our team of experts cares for our community by providing real-time information through our 24/7 poison helpline and by sharing life-saving poison prevention education in all our 54 counties.
