855-How-To-Quit-(Opioids) (case study)

Agencies: Serviceplan Serviceplan Germany


855-HOW-TO-QUIT-(OPIOIDS) is an innovative approach to help those struggling with opioids. It’s a helpline that turns the object of addiction into a way out, to reach out to people in the most critical moment – when they have a pill in their hand.

The helpline uses the familiar opioid pill codes as phone extensions, connecting the caller with a person who managed to quit that very same pill, sharing their experiences and advice on how to quit. The initiative launched as a nationwide campaign on location and context specific OOH media, film, and social.

Serviceplan Group, in collaboration with a coalition of NGOs, healthcare consultancy Anzen Health, activists, media partners, and professional photographers, has launched an innovative initiative called 855-HOW-TO-QUIT. This creative campaign aims to combat the opioid epidemic by providing a toll-free helpline that uses the imprint codes found on common opioid pills as phone extensions. This unique system allows individuals struggling with opioid addiction to connect directly with those who have successfully managed to quit, offering personalized advice and support.

The initiative provides multiple ways for the public to get involved. Individuals can engage in advocacy efforts, support relevant legislation, and influence decisions that promote recovery. Additionally, people can participate through volunteering, donating, or sharing their recovery stories, which not only inspire others but also contribute to a society that celebrates and supports recovery. 855-HOW-TO-QUIT offers a beacon of hope in the battle against opioid addiction, providing a vital path to recovery for those in need.
