International Overdose Awareness Day

International Overdose Awareness Day is the world’s largest annual campaign to end overdose, remember without stigma those who have died, and acknowledge the grief of the family and friends left behind. 

Overdose is something that touches us every single day at Covenant House Vancouver. Our young people have lost family members, friends and have had their own lived experiences with overdose. We shared Lily’s story of her losing her best friend to an overdose and how that was the turning point in her seeking help.

International Overdose Awareness Day shares overdose basics and key facts and stats to help folks learn more and get involved.

Covenant House Vancouver is remembering those lives lost to overdose, thinking of friends and family members who have lost loved ones, and is committed to taking action today and every day.
