FQA Institute for Social Impact

We are a non-profit consulting firm that focuses on addiction

Social Impact Collaboratives


We help organizations design and scale solutions in support of people with substance use disorder and their families.


We intend to help foster a high-performing ecosystem that brings together research, non profits, start-ups and corporations to design, optimize and scale long-term, data-driven solutions to substance use disorder.


We are effective because our values inform all that we do: 

  • Curious​: Never assuming we know more than we do

  • Humble: Recognizing value in every person and every opinion​

  • Provocative: Respectfully pushing boundaries with a passion for debate

  • Optimistic​: Injecting a positive mindset to all challenges

We will achieve our mission by working across four program areas.
