Today is International Overdose Awareness day

The theme of this year’s International Overdose Awareness Day is “Recognizing those people who go unseen,” in honor of the people whose lives have been altered by overdose

They are the family and friends grieving the loss of a loved one, workers in healthcare and support services extending strength and compassion, or spontaneous first responders who selflessly assume the role of lifesaver.

Today, we rededicate ourselves to overdose prevention in all of our communities. Learn more about overdose at
