Overdose Awareness Day
August 31, 2023
Overdose Awareness Day is a solemn occasion that sheds light on the devastating consequences of drug overdoses. It serves as a reminder that we must come together as a global community to support those affected by addiction, to remember those we've lost, and to work toward a future where overdose-related deaths are preventable. By raising awareness, reducing stigma, and advocating for change, we can all play a role in saving lives and addressing the opioid epidemic.
