We directly attribute AffirmHealth's traction to our team's passion to aid in the fight against the ongoing opioid epidemic. Every employee has been personally affected by the crisis--two of our founders are from small, rural towns in the crosshairs of the crisis and our third founder (an ER physician by training) works on the front-line and sees the epidemic's impact daily. Our personal experiences led to a unified, burning passion to help and that is what drives us every day.
