August 31st is International Overdose Awareness Day. On this day, we amplify our voices to raise awareness, eliminate stigma, and recognize those who may go unseen as part of this epidemic.
This initiative strives to eliminate overdoses, commemorate those lost, and recognize the anguish experienced by bereaved friends and families. “Overdose” doesn’t discriminate – it can impact anyone, regardless of their background. Shattering the stigma linked to addiction and fostering candid discussions are paramount for change.
