RIZE Massachusetts (RIZE) is the only public-private partnership solely dedicated to funding solutions to end the overdose crisis.
RIZE’s goal is to ensure that people suffering from substance use disorder have access to care and experience better quality of life and overall health. Guided by those with lived experience and unafraid of new ideas, RIZE is building networks, creating programming, and supporting community partners who are using novel approaches to preventing overdose. RIZE seeks to increase visibility, expand the evidence base, and inform policy so that government and the treatment and recovery community can more confidently elevate programs with promise. At the same time, RIZE is amplifying the voices of its community partners to bring greater awareness and urgency to the devastating impact of the overdose crisis.
We envision a Massachusetts with zero stigma and zero deaths.
