About Us

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

Founded in 2018, in partnership with Florida Blue and funded by the Florida Blue Foundation, Project Opioid was created in response to the opioid overdose epidemic. Beginning in Central Florida, the initiative quickly expanded to five additional regions across the state, including Miami, Tampa Bay, Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and Jacksonville. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, mental health struggles combined with substance misuse have caused overdose deaths to soar to unprecedented heights, calling for urgent and strategic solutions. Project Opioid JAX, an initiative of JAX Chamber, collaborates with the top leaders in our community to confront the overdose crisis through education and awareness, data analysis, high-impact strategies, outreach and engagement to vulnerable communities, and cutting-edge advocacy. We utilize our network of leaders across all sectors, along with service providers, and information specialists to facilitate evidence-based collaborations that force multiply efforts and help reduce overdose deaths.
