The UVA Center for Leading Edge Addiction Research or CLEAR clinic seeks adults ages 18 or older who are being prescribed opioids for management of pain or are already struggling with an opioid addiction to participate in a research study. Our goal of this study is to determine if offering a phone-based helpline is a useful tool for individuals trying to reduce their reliance on opioids to treat pain or those struggling with an addiction to opioids. In this study, we are offering telephone support, education and referrals to treatment.
The study involves a series of 4 weekly telephone calls, each lasting 30 to 45 minutes, including online assessments, individualized support and education. Additional follow-up calls will be conducted at 1, 3 and 6 months. All phone sessions are provided at no cost.
