Foundation for Opioid Response Efforts (FORE) Issues Annual Report Outlining Approaches for Addressing the US Opioid Crisis

New York, New York, UNITED STATES

New York, Jan. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The numbers are tragic and frightening: Deaths from drug overdoses are at an all-time high, with 255 Americans dying every day of an overdose. This grim statistic is driven in part by the increased availability of synthetic opioids such as fentanyl. Unprecedented social isolation and unemployment during COVID-19, as well as disruptions in treatment and recovery supports are fueling overdose rates. The Foundation for Opioid Response Efforts (FORE) 2021 Annual Report outlines how FORE-funded organizations across the country are implementing innovative life-saving approaches to address the crisis. 

Dr. Karen A. Scott, President of FORE, and members of the FORE team would be pleased to speak with you about FORE’s grant-making approach. We can also connect you with our grantees on the frontlines of the opioid crisis. They have dramatic stories to tell about how their FORE-funded programs are having a real impact on people and families coping with addiction.
