“International Opioid Overdose Awareness Day”

Tomorrow is International Opioid Overdose Awareness Day, an annual campaign to end overdose and remember those who have died…without any stigma. 

And it also looks to acknowledge the grief of the family and friends left behind.

According to the Centre for Disease Control, an estimated number of people in the USA who had died from an overdose in the 12-months ending in September 2020 was 90,237.
