With a global pandemic dominating the news cycle and changing our daily lives, it’s easy to forget about the other epidemic that kills American daily: opioid overdose. 

August 31 is International Overdose Awareness Day, a global event to raise awareness of overdose and reduce the stigma of a drug-related death. Overdose death is preventable and is still occuring in spite of COVID-19. In observance of the day, we want to call attention to the impact opioid misuse has in the United States, as well as resources for learning more. 

In the coming weeks we will reintroduce the topic of opioid misuse in our conversations and in our blog, because with attention, understanding, and vigilance this epidemic too can be overcome.
