August 31st is International Overdose Awareness Day

International Overdose Awareness Day is a global event held on August 31st each year and aims to raise awareness of overdose and reduce the stigma of a drug-related death. It also acknowledges the grief felt by families and friends remembering those who have met with death or permanent injury as a result of drug overdose.

Overdose Day spreads the message that the tragedy of overdose death is preventable.

This overdose awareness day, Gateway Alcohol & Drug Treatment Centers aim to help reduce the stigma by participating in Overdose Awareness Day Events throughout the Chicagoland area.
