August 31 is International Overdose Awareness Day

International Overdose Awareness Day is a global event held on August 31 each year and aims to raise awareness of overdose and reduce the stigma of a drug-related death. It also acknowledges the grief felt by families and friends remembering those who have died or had a permanent injury as a result of drug overdose.

International Overdose Awareness Day spreads the message that the tragedy of overdose death is preventable.

During the week of August 27 to 31, a table with overdose resources will be set up in the County Centre lobby. Please stop by to pick up resources and a silver ribbon pin to symbolize international overdose awareness day.
