Our names are Heloise de Baun and Anna Beloborodova. We first met through working at the New York State Psychiatric Institute and formed a close friendship. Our personal experiences of seeing loved ones struggle with opioid addiction inspired us to get involved in promoting harm reduction practices to people who use drugs, and increasing public awareness of substance use disorders.

We are  passionate about reducing overdoses and spreading as much awareness as we can about safe drug use, the lifesaving potential of Naloxone, and the various treatment options that exist for opioid addiction. Aside from doing harm reduction work, we are working on building group meetings that will help people struggling with addiction rebuild their lives.
