For life-saving treatment advice about any kind of poison, call 1-800-222-1222. A specially trained nurse, pharmacist or doctor at your poison center will help. All services are free and confidential. Poison center services are available for people with hearing problems and for non-English speakers. When health care providers need information about treating poisonings, they also call their local poison center.

For administrative questions, you can reach us at (202) 362-3867 or Do NOT call that number for poison emergencies. Do NOT send questions about poison exposures or possible poisonings to that email address. If you have a question about a possible poisoning, use the webPOISONCONTROL tool or call Poison Control (1-800-222-1222 in the U.S.). If you are outside the U.S., use local procedures to reach poison control or go to an emergency room if you have a poison emergency.

webPOISONCONTROL is an online web tool which can be found accessed at and as well as a free mobile app downloadable on the App Store or on Google play. The mobile app offers the additional feature of product barcode scanning, allowing the user to select the implicated product more quickly and accurately.

Parents and childcare providers are encouraged to be prepared for a poison emergency and should download the app to a mobile device before it's needed. Or go to and try it out. Click on the orange button labeled "HELP ME with a possible poisoning", then check the box labeled "I'm just trying the tool. This is not a real case."

While the triage tool is the unique component of webPOISONCONTROL, the online version has an accompanying pill identifier, scores of articles on specific poisons with toxicity information and prevention tips, downloadable prevention materials, and a summary of U.S. poisoning stats. The site also offers an opportunity to subscribe to a free, quarterly poison safety e-newsletter: The Poison Post.

The second reason for developing webPOISONCONTROL relates to the U.S. poison centers' constant struggle to secure adequate funding. Time and time again, poison centers have been shown to provide life-saving and cost-saving services, with a recent study estimating the return on investment at $13.39 saved per dollar spent. But despite undisputed efficacy of services, poison center funding at most of the 55 U.S. poison centers remains unstable. webPOISONCONTROL has the potential to decrease the cost of providing poison control services nationally, lessening the fiscal challenges facing traditional poison centers.

The third reason for developing webPOISONCONTROL was to improve the efficiency of delivering poison control services by establishing standardized triage algorithms. These algorithms form the core of webPOISONCONTROL and also guide Specialists in Poison Information in the eight participating poison centers. As a result, the inefficiencies of repeatedly researching a substance's toxic threshold are eliminated, as are the inefficiencies of each poison center developing guidelines independently. Furthermore, care becomes more uniform both within centers and from one geographic region to another.

More than a third of human poison exposure cases handled over the phone by traditional poison centers could potentially be handled online if the user preferred to do so. webPOISONCONTROL is a game changer, and may dramatically alter the delivery of poison help in the U.S., but it certainly will not make poison centers obsolete. Human experts are still required to provide triage or treatment guidance for complex cases. Use webPOISONCONTROL for unintentional, acute, single substance cases. The app is for people who are between the ages of 6 months and 79 years and are not pregnant. For all other cases call Poison Control at 1-800-222-1222. If you'd rather talk to a real person, you can always call Poison Control for immediate and expert assistan
