Save-the-date International Overdose Awareness Day
International Overdose Awareness Day is a global event held one day during the last week in August each year and aims to raise awareness of overdose and reduce the stigma of a drug-related death. It also acknowledges the grief felt by families and friends remembering those who have died or had a permanent injury as a result of drug overdose. Knowing the real facts about drugs and what to do when you see someone experiencing an overdose DOES save lives! Overdose Day events that aim to educate our communities about drugs can really help, This is a beautiful, powerful, meaningful evening and a wonderful way to show your support and love for those affected by addiction.
