“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead

We had the privilege of presenting our work on Naxos OD at the first Tech and Harm Reduction Symposium founded by our dear friends at Brave. We were inspired by people across the continent who are working to transform how we think about and treat people who use drugs, as well as how we can better utilize technology to keep people safe(r). The passion and commitment of this small group of thoughtful people is truly changing our world. Although the symposium is over, you can click HERE and connect with the speakers.

We have been working hard raising funds to pilot Naxos OD and are excited to announce two new supporters, Victory Clinical Services and Startup South Bend/Elkhart.  Victory Clinical Services provides quality, value, and optimal outpatient services to persons with opiate use disorders through medication assisted treatment and an integrated network of care. Victory clinic has generously committed unrestricted funds for our pilot. Startup South Bend/Elkhart offers capital sources for entrepreneurs who have an idea and are investigating business model and concepts. We have received proof-of-concept funding that will allow us to develop marketing materials for our responder and app download campaigns. These gracious gifts have allowed us to move closer to piloting Naxos OD. We will start recruiting responders soon. If you live in or frequent the South Bend area and are interested in supporting us as a Naxos OD responder, please take a look at our Responder Registration.  If you know an organization that may be interested in supporting us in reaching our pilot launch funding goals, please contact us HERE.

App Update
We are in the process of public submission for Naxos OD on Google Play and Apple app stores.  We are planning one last round of beta testing with a small group of people willing to give us feedback. If you are interested in helping us with this important work, please let us know HERE.
