What We Face

Addiction Interventions & Care Services


We’re overloaded with overdoses in America. COVID-19 only accelerated these deaths of despair, and the Sackler family is only recently being held accountable for the deceptive and manipulative practices of Purdue Pharma, one of the most exploitative enterprises of the last century.

We’re interested in ventures building creative solutions to addiction and its aftermath. First, in a world of predictive technology, we have the ability to nudge people to identify when they are on the path toward poor decision making. Self-reporting and quantification are increasingly mainstream, but this data has yet to be fully leveraged for insights that can help the user resist harmful behaviors.

And few individuals escape addiction on their own. The essential ingredient of accountable human community can be facilitated through various methods, including technology, housing, and shared work settings.
