PAARI: Life of a Fentanyl Test Strip Kit

It was great to work with PAARI again to help promote their cause.

PAARI is a national program doing its part to fight the disease of addiction. They partner with law enforcement agencies nationwide to create non-arrest pathways to treatment and recovery.

PAARI has begun a year-long project, partnering with police departments, to determine how Fentanyl test strip kits can be used by local PD to engage with individuals and help connect them to treatment and recovery systems.

We shot and produced this video that serves as a program overview and explainer video that PAARI will share with their existing and potential partners.

The video begins with a brief overview of the program, followed by a look inside the kits, and ends with the kits in the hand of a street outreach officer and recovery coach who are ready to give them to the public.

The program has a huge emphasis on outreach and we portrayed that in the video. PAARI is hoping that passing out the kits will help local PD start conversations, build trust and get people to use their resources to start recovery.

PAARI's goal is to save lives and fight the disease of addiction and we're glad to help them whenever we can.
