Each year we lose thousands of people from drug overdose globally. Some survive but suffer a permanent injury, with devastating impact to their families and friends. The opioid crisis in Massachusetts is having an especially profound impact on our communities.
On August 31, Dorchester Bay will participate in International Overdose Awareness Day. Join us on social media where we will reflect on the impact of opioid addiction, share facts and lifesaving information, and encourage others to join the conversation.
Overdose is preventable. Knowing the real facts about drugs and what to do when you see someone experiencing an overdose DOES save lives. Get involved to prevent the tragedy of overdose.
