August 31 is Overdose Awareness Day

For too many of us, this is a day of grieving for those we have lost, remembering those who have met with death or permanent injury as a result of a drug overdose. The United States is in the midst of a drug overdose epidemic. Of the 61,311 preventable drug overdoses in the country in 2017, more than 43,000 involved opioids. Source.

But this day is also a day of hope, in recognition of the tens of thousands of lives that have been saved from overdose, and a call to further action to end the overdose crisis. Hear the stories of real people who are working on their addictions here at Triumph.
