International Overdose Awareness Day is held on August 31 and is the world’s largest annual campaign to end overdose, remember without stigma those who have died and acknowledge the grief of the family and friends left behind.

The overdose epidemic has taken a toll on far too many Americans and their loved ones. Addiction is a disease that touches families in every community.

According to data from the Center for Decease Control and Prevention, of the more than 93,000 reported drug overdoses in 2020, more than three-quarters were attributed to opioids.

Time to Remember. Time to Act.
