DULUTH, MN-- A new 24-hour hotline focused on connecting patients with a substance use disorder provider is now available.
Essentia Health said the service is open to anyone.
“The purpose of the 24/7 substance use disorder hotline is to help remove barriers to connect patients suffering from a substance use disorder directly to an appointment with an Essentia Health provider for non-judgmental care,” says Kelly Black, program manager for Essentia Health’s opioid treatment program. “We’ve made great strides to increase the number of medical providers who can offer medication for opioid use disorder.”
Services are available at: (833) 677-1262
Essentia Health has more than 30 trained providers and plans to add an additional 40 trained providers within the next year.
