International Overdose Awareness Day (August 31st) and month is in August. This day provides an opportunity for us to reflect on practical ways to prevent overdose in our community. Overdose is preventable. Knowing the real facts about drugs and what to do when you see someone experiencing an overdose DOES save lives. IOAD events that aim to educate our communities about drugs can really help.Each year we lose thousands of people from drug overdose globally. Some survive but suffer a permanent injury, with devastating impact to their families and friends. Fort Wayne, IN and Allen county is not immune. You may have seen it; it has happened to people around you. Tomorrow, it could happen to someone you love. This is not an invisible issue.
