International Overdose Awareness Day
International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD) is the world’s largest annual campaign to end overdose, remember, without stigma, those who have died from overdose, and acknowledge the grief of the family and friends left behind.
The IOAD 2023 theme “Recognizing those people who go unseen” is about acknowledging people in our communities who are affected by overdose but might go unseen in the crisis.
Come and join us for our very own International Overdose Awareness Day

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