The Texas Poison Center Network is primarily supported by a state agency through the collection of an intrastate long distance surcharge. Your generous donation can help support our regional poison centers to provide expert help in poison emergencies as well as provide free poison prevention education.
Your Poison Center is cost effective, safely treating 80% of callers at home and saving the State’s residents millions of dollars in medical expenses each year. For each dollar spent in Texas to fund poison centers, thirteen dollars is saved in medical expenses.
About half of poisoning emergencies involve small children. The Poison Center also helps with the management of drug interactions, suicide attempts, medication errors, substance abuse, chemical spills, and occupational exposures. Highly trained, certified toxicology specialists provide expert treatment and guidance immediately. Pet owners call too, when the dog, cat or bird has been poisoned.
