By donating to International Overdose Awareness Day you can help us spread the message that the tragedy of overdose is preventable.

Your support is extremely valuable. Every dollar counts in helping us create awareness about overdose prevention as well as providing support to people who have lost loved ones to overdose.

People lost due to overdose are not just statistics – they are family members and friends.

International Overdose Awareness Day is an initiative of Penington Institute.

Through International Overdose Awareness Day, we drive an overdose awareness campaign that includes community education and awareness-raising activities.
