RWJF Opioid Challenge

Funding Agency:
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

Addiction is complex. Every individual faces a different set of challenges and has unique needs. In working to address the challenge prompt, tech-enabled solutions should aim to support affected individuals (e.g. opioid users, caregivers, peers, family, etc.) and connect them to relevant resources. This is not an exercise to develop tools for specific disease interventions or technologies for clinical therapy decision-making.

Can you create technology enabled tools to help support and connect individuals affected by opioid addiction?

SUPPORT: Help identify resources, facilities, and educational content for support

CONNECT: Help patients, caregivers and peers connect to one another and create a peer community
