Overdose Awareness Day and Recovery Month

International Overdose Awareness Day (OAD) is a global event held on August 31st each year and aims to raise awareness of overdoses, reduce the stigma of drug-related deaths, and acknowledge the grief felt by families and friends. The month of September is recognized as National Recovery Month and works to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life.
