Answer

Consultation with a regional poison control center or a medical toxicologist may be appropriate in complicated cases.

Refer the patient for drug abuse counseling and treatment.

If domestic violence is identified from the history or physical examination, refer the patient to an appropriate agency that makes referrals for physical and psychological problems and provides safety, treatment, advocacy, and support.

Provide referral for counseling or testing for HIV and other sexually transmitted disease (STD), as appropriate.
