The Alliance to HEAL (Halting the Effects of Addiction Locally) launched in August of 2018 to work towards healing the broken continuum of care for local people with substance abuse disorders. Alliance to HEAL brought together over 80 community members including judges, mayors, hospital CEOs, legislators, and boots on the ground people working directly with those struggling with addiction. Together, they're sharing their experiences and are problem-solving to improve our community response to the opioid crisis.

Together as an alliance, we will halt the devastating effects caused by opiate addiction; we will work locally with conviction, with unity, and with a commitment to support our neighbors in times of dire need. Working together, we will defeat the opioid epidemic by creating an alliance of community, medical, government, business, nonprofit, and philanthropic agencies dedicated to reducing the effects of opioids in our community.

Come hear about the initiatives that are already underway, what is coming, and how you can help support the efforts to address the gaps in our community for people with substance abuse disorders.
