August 31 is International Overdose Awareness Day

August 31, 2017 is International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD). IOAD was established in 2001 by two Australians, Sally J. Finn and Peter Streker, with the aim of raising awareness that overdose deaths are preventable. Since their first gathering, a plethora of communities, government and non-government organizations, community health centers, users, families and more throughout the world have hosted events to raise awareness and commemorate those who have lost their lives to drug overdose.

For those who would like to get involved and show your support, there are many opportunities to do this on the international, national and local levels. Checking out the IOAD website is a good place to start.

Below is a list of some events you may find near you.
