International Overdose Awareness Day is a global event held on August 31 each year to end overdose. Its purpose is to raise awareness of overdoses, reduce the stigma of drug-related deaths and acknowledge the grief felt by families and friends.
Sadly, the death toll from overdose continues to rise.
Blood Tribe’s State of Emergency Opioid Crisis.
Let’s use this day to remember those who have succumbed to the deadly mix of fentanyl, carfentynil and methamphetamines and to acknowledge the grief of the families and friends left behind. A Time to Remember. A Time to Act.
The Blood tribe Opioid Task Force continues to passionately create awareness and support through Harm Reduction with Wellness, Communications, Support, Actions, Culturally Appropriate Treatments and Programs.
We’re here for you. We’re doing what we can to help the healing process, and our BTDH staff is working tirelessly on the need to create change and help the Tribe.
Join us in love and support with our Purple Balloon Campaign marking the Blood Tribe’s acknowledgement for International Overdose Awareness Day.
Join us in Love and Support,
