Arkansas Poison and Drug Information Center (APDIC)
Welcome to the Arkansas Poison and Drug Information Center (APDIC) webpage! Please also visit our Facebook page under the same name Arkansas Poison & Drug Information Center for current events and stories related to poisoning. The Center is open 24/7 and is confidential and free. The hotline number is 1-800-222-1222. The Center is staffed by Certified Specialists in Poison Information (CSPI). The Specialists are either a doctor, pharmacist or a registered nurse. This webpage was developed primarily for teachers, school nurses, community health workers and volunteers to access poison prevention information, find tips for presenting a poison prevention lecture to a school or community group and to order poison prevention materials online to be mailed to your office or home to distributed within the community. If you have any questions about public education outreach or want to order poison prevention/education materials simply click on the contact for free materials link and fill out the form. You may also email Charlie Stutts at CHStutts@uams.edu anytime day or night or call the administrative line during business hours at 501-686-6161 for a prompt response to your requests for poison prevention information or materials.
The APDIC needs people to call the poison hotline for the latest up to date clinical information regarding any poison exposure or drug interaction question rather than going online and getting information that may or may not be relevant or in some cases actually may be harmful to you or a loved one. Place the 1-800-222-1222 hotline number in your cell phone today so you will always have access to the service whether you are a school, work or home.
