Overdose Awareness Day 2023 - DHI

DHI is observing World Overdose Awareness Day on August 31st through open sessions at several of our main centers. This provides individuals with the opportunity to gather information about the perils of overdose and shine a light on the available assistance.

Globally recognized as the largest annual initiative to combat overdose, International Overdose Awareness Day stands to eliminate stigma, honor the memory of those who have passed, and acknowledge the sorrow experienced by their loved ones.
