International Overdose Awareness Day - August 31

Summer 2022

August 31st is International Overdose Awareness Day. On this day, we take the time to remember those we have lost due to overdose/toxic drug poisoning and commit to ending the stigma around substance use. You can help end overdose. Free naloxone training and kits are available at select PMH sites and from the PMH Community Connections van. Prairie Mountain Health also offers RAAM clinics for those looking to get help with high-risk substance use.
