Overdose Awareness Day

International Overdose Awareness Day is a global event held on August 31st 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. Do you recognise the signs and symptoms of overdose? What is the impact of drug use and overdose on family, friends and those experiencing it? International Overdose Awareness Day spreads the message that overdose death is preventable. Thousands of people die each year from drug overdose. They come from all walks of life. On August 31st the I-35 Interstate bridge will be lit purple in their memory and that bridge is located adjacent to McLane Stadium in Waco, TX. Join VASA Coalition and Central Texas Harm Reduction in raising awareness on August 31, 2020.
