ABOUT US

WHAT IS PROJECT OPIOID?

Project Opioid is a coalition that brings together business, faith, government, and philanthropic leaders to create a major impact on the overdose crisis in their communities.
OUR MISSION
Founded in 2018, Project Opioid was created in response to the raging opioid epidemic that claimed the lives of nearly 450,000 people across America one decade before the pandemic. Since then, the COVID-19 pandemic has driven the opioid crisis to unprecedented heights, creating the greatest mental health, substance abuse, and overdose crisis in U.S. history. The startling new data on opioid overdose and death calls for leaders to embrace a different approach to solving the opioid epidemic.

 

At Project Opioid, we empower leaders to confront this rising crisis in communities by applying our new model based off our success in Central Florida.

The Project Opioid collaborative aligns leaders around one shared goal:
to reduce opioid deaths in their communities by at least 50 percent in three years.
 

We educate leaders on how to build coalitions, launch an overdose initiative, and do high-level advocacy to create a movement greater than themselves that will transform and save the lives of those struggling with mental health and substance abuse issues in their regions.

How Leaders Can Engage on the Overdose Crisis

At Project Opioid, we believe leaders like you can create a major impact on the opioid crisis over the next 36 months in three steps:

Coalition Building:

Build a collaborative of high-impact business, faith, and philanthropic leaders to create a new frontline on the overdose crisis

Overdose Initiative:

Launch a regional overdose initiative that targets crucial resources and support to those in highest risk of overdose in your community

Advocacy:

Lead a high-level advocacy campaign to those who are struggling the most with mental health and substance abuse during this crisis, Generation Z and Millennials, in order to raise public awareness and inspire policy change
