Treatment & Prevention

Investing in Compassionate and Effective Approaches to Prevention, Harm Reduction,
Treatment, and Recovery

RIZE invests in comprehensive, compassionate, and sustainable prevention, harm reduction, treatment, and recovery interventions to help people avoid and survive opioid use disorder and improve their lives. Through our research and grantmaking, we are disrupting the status quo by selecting, supporting, and scaling the most effective and innovative programs available today and putting them to work saving lives.


Saving Lives, Improving Health

In June 2018, RIZE awarded $1.8 million in grants to four community-based programs as part of our inaugural grant program Saving Lives, Improving Health: Redesigning Opioid Use Disorder Care.

RIZE just launched a new grant program focused on innovative and collaborative harm reduction efforts. The newly awarded grants are being used to start pilot programs and enhance existing ones using novel and effective approaches to harm reduction.
