Each year in August, we remember those we've lost to overdose. The 31st of the month is International Overdose Awareness Day. As our great nation battles the addiction crisis, we raise awareness by sharing our stories and coming together as a community to honor those we've lost.

This year, our communities planned several events across Nevada to memorialize those we've lost and raise awareness.

Our Director of Communications, Sean O'Donnell, shared his story at the Overdose Awareness Day in Southern Nevada. Our Program Director visited a local jail to meet women and shared their stories at the Overdose Awareness Day event in northern Nevada.
