Overdose Awareness Day is an internationally recognized day which began in Australia in 2001 and is observed annually on August 31st. Overdose Awareness Day (ODAD) spreads the message that the tragedy of overdose death is preventable. This is a day to acknowledge the grief felt by families and friends whose loved ones have died or suffered permanent injury from a drug overdose.

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