The Poison Help number is a national line that routes each call to the nearest poison center. For example, if you dial 1-800-222-1222 from anywhere in New Mexico you will be connected to the New Mexico Poison and Drug Information Center (NMPDIC).
So be prepared when seconds count. The services offered at the NMPDIC are free, confidential and available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Learn more about NMPDIC
