Our Overdose Awareness Day will be a celebration of life. We will honor and celebrate those we have lost to overdoses. We will be having music, food and candle light vigil. We also will have Harm Reduction Trainings and honoring our local police and paramedics who have saved lives with Narcan that we supply them with in the community. We have 6 vending machines in community police stations that have free Narcan to the public along with testing strips.

Overdose affects everyone. From grieving families to spontaneous first responders, the impacts of overdose are far-reaching and fall indiscriminately.

Sign up to the International Overdose Awareness Day newsletter and become part of the global movement to end overdose.
