International Overdose Awareness Day
August 31, 2023
On International Overdose Awareness Day, we want to acknowledge the horrific impact of drug overdoses, in particular those involving opioids, and share some resources that we’ve found helpful, as individuals, to help combat this crisis. You can save a life by carrying Naloxone (Narcan), a safe, effective, easy-to-administer opioid reversal drug. Nalaxone is widely available for free in New Jersey, in New York, as well as in other states. Live and recorded trainings in multiple languages including ASL are also widely available.
