About the FEND Movement

What is FEND?

Combining cutting-edge tech, music, and streetwear, FEND is all about empowering you. Knowledge is power after all. The FEND app enables you to take the lead, join forces, and beat the opioid crisis.  More than a campaign, FEND is a movement.

Why FEND?

FEND will give you the facts. Our app has all the info you need to learn about opioids (and you can even win stuff as you learn). Too many people are dying or having their lives destroyed, and it’s time to take a stand – for yourself and for each other.  We can’t rely on government, doctors or big pharma to fight the battle for us. 

Join the Movement

In 2018, FEND is joining forces with the iconic Vans Warped Tour in its final year… you’ll find members of the movement at each stop of the tour. Download the FEND app and onboard the FEND campaign!

Rewards and Prizes

We want 50,000 people to join the FEND movement this summer.  Download the app for the chance to earn rewards and prizes as you learn about opioids. You can win tickets to the Vans Warped Tour and limited VIP experiences with your favorite bands.

The Facts

The stats are pretty scary. Over the past four years, the misuse of opioids by 15-19 year olds has dramatically increased, sadly, so too have drug overdose deaths. Most of these overdose deaths are accidental, and over half are caused by prescription painkillers (opioids). Opioids are also a known gateway drug to heroin. Join the movement – let’s reverse the stats, and make a stand against opioids together.
