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

 

 

 

At Project Opioid, we empower leaders to confront the overdose initiative in their communities by embracing new strategies and leverage cutting-edge data. 

Project Opioid aligns leaders around one shared goal: to reduce opioid deaths in their communities by at least 50% in three years. We educate leaders on how to build a coalition, launch a regional overdose initiative, and do high-level advocacy to transform and save the greatest number of lives in their communities.

Our model

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 under to create a new frontline on the overdose crisis and save lives in 2021 and beyond

Lifesaving Resources

 

Launch a regional overdose initiative that leverages innovative new strategies and cutting-edge data to target crucial resources and support to those at highest risk of overdose in your community

Advocacy

 

Lead an advocacy campaign to those who are struggling the most with mental health and substance abuse during this crisis, Generation Z and Millennials, to create public awareness and policy change

Our History

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 in one decade. 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.
