International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD)

International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD) is the world's largest annual campaign to end overdose. With the theme for 2023, "Recognizing those people who go unseen," we honor the people whose lives have been altered by overdose. They are the family and friends grieving the loss of a loved one; workers in healthcare and support services extending strength and compassion; or spontaneous first responders who selflessly assume the role of lifesaver. They are too often left to bear the burden of this crisis alone and in silence.
