IOAD was initiated in Melbourne, Australia by Sally J Finn in 2001. August 31 was chosen to be the awareness day because it is the last day of the cold and dark season of winter in Australia and represents an opportunity for remembrance and reflection, and simultaneously marks the start of spring which symbolizes hope and a new genesis. August 31 also dovetails nicely into Recovery Month which occurs in the month of September, finishing in International Recovery Day on September 30.

Yes, there is! Please visit our resources page and download the Advocacy Toolkit to access this.

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