20% of addiction-related mortality

The project

The Fonds Actions Addictions (Addiction Action Fund or F2A) was founded in 2014 with the aim of helping to combat addictions and to unite all relevant French stakeholders around the same initiative. It forms part of an innovative new approach to addiction treatment, through the use of portals for sharing information, resources and dialogue: Addict’Aide – The Addictions community and Addict’Aide – The Workplace, bringing together all persons affected by addiction (organisations for sufferers of addiction, patients and their loved ones, practitioners, caregivers and researchers, and for addictions in the workplace, the HR team, occupational doctor, trade unions, etc.). A MOOC and a training programme have been created in tandem with these portals. F2A aims to take practical action to: – Support and scale up preventive measures against the risks of dependency and addictions – Provide better support to patients and their families – Make it easier to seek information and find relevant support structures, by encouraging the pooling of knowledge on the subject of addictions. – Initiate and support actions, innovative projects and research towards faster, more effective ways of reducing the damaging impact of addictions

Role of the ENGIE Foundation

The ENGIE Foundation has been providing ongoing financial support since 2016 to create, improve and maintain the Addict’aide portals. In late 2017, it approached MakeSense and its SenseAcademy in order to introduce the Addict’Aide portal and integrate it within a workplace setting. Over a period of six weeks, this “Design Thinking”-inspired innovation training programme brought together a team of talented young people and experts to take on the challenge. And the results? A team of fifteen highly motivated participants, almost 200 examples of real-life insight gathered from a variety of individuals in the workplace setting (HR managers, occupational doctors, trade unions, company directors, etc.), and a concrete solution in the form of four prototypes: an information graphic, a support booklet, posters and flyers! In 2018, the two portals logged 307,311 individual visitors over 390,000 sessions.
