Welcome to the Arkansas Poison and Drug Information Center (APDIC) webpage! The APDIC is participating in “Giving Tuesday” December 2, 2014. Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for you to partner with us in our mission to reduce the incidence of accidental poisonings in children and adults. The APDIC works hard to provide up to date treatment recommendations when poisonings due occur. Your donation will enable us to better serve Arkansans with more money for public education outreach and programming. Please consider giving to the APDIC this Tuesday. Simply contact Education Coordinator Charlie Stutts at chstutts@uams.edu for giving details or you may mail a check written out to Arkansas Poison Center with the account number 716046242 written somewhere on the check. Mail the check to the following address:

UAMS COP AR Poison Center

Attn: Charlie Stutts

4301 W. Markham St., Slot 522-2

Little Rock, AR 72205

The Center is open 24/7 and is confidential and free! 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 staffed by  Specialists in Poison Information (SPI).  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.

If you need to mail correspondence or a request to the APDIC our mailing address is follows:
