Our Mission

Prescription for Progress is a coalition of leaders in healthcare, media, law enforcement, education and business committed to raising awareness and taking positive steps to address the opioid crisis. Drawing support from across the Capital Region, we’re working to change the ways in which addiction is understood, treated, and ultimately prevented.

Our mission is simple: Save lives, build communities.

The Coalition

Our strength comes from many. Opioid abuse affects us all—and we can all be part of the solution. These organizations are part of Prescription for Progress.
