August 26th, 2023 is a joint effort that honors International Overdose Awareness Day (#IODAD), held worldwide since 2001. #IODAD is an annual campaign that started in Australia to end the opioid epidemic. It is a time to remember those who have needlessly died, and to acknowledge the grief of their family and friends they left behind. Their message is that “the tragedy of an overdose death is preventable.”

Overdose Lifeline, Inc (#ODL), has an objective to increase access to preventative treatment, education services, removing the stigma of addiction, provide support and give proper care to those at risk. #ODL recognizes that hosting or attending #IODAD events are a powerful way to join globally. This ensures those whom benefit the most, are able without fear or judgement.

#ODL will be on site the 26th, to offer training regarding how to recognize the signs of overdose, what to do if you suspect an overdose, what #Naloxone is, how it works, and to distribute overdose reversal kits! We will donate a portion of the door to #ODL and their work. Our partnership will make these valuable and (often times), life saving resources accessible.

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.
