Organization: We Are Allies

About the Organization:

We Are Allies (WAA), Inc. was founded at the first-ever Opioid Epidemic Challenge Summit and Hackathon hosted by the Massachusetts General Hospital and the GE Foundation in September 2016.

It is an innovative nonprofit founded by a group of medical experts, pharmacists, military veterans, designers and people in long-term recovery addressing the opioid crisis by fighting the stigma of addiction and deploying the lifesaving overdose reversal drug naloxone into communities. Their goal is to help prevent opioid overdose deaths and to support friends and neighbors suffering from addiction – through carrying naloxone in our highly-visible naloxone carrying cases and teaching others to think about addiction as a chronic disease rather than a personal failing.
