One Overdose Stops More than One Heart by Ashley Brewer #TheWellnessUniverse #WUVIP #Overdose.jpg

International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD) is a global event held on August 31st each year and aims to raise awareness of overdose and reduce the stigma of a drug-related death. It also acknowledges the grief felt by families and friends remembering those who have met with death or permanent injury as a result of a drug overdose. Overdose Day spreads the message that the tragedy of overdose death is preventable. Wear Silver (or purple) to show your support. – http://www.overdoseday.com
“If you’re like me and have lost loved ones due to substance abuse overdose, then I can bet you resonate with the title of this article. I say this with confidence because it’s the truth; an overdose death doesn’t just stop the addict’s heart, it stops the hearts of those that love them, too. I know firsthand because I have lost over 20 friends in the last decade as a direct result of an overdose. I ensure that their passing isn’t in vain by using my voice for them, especially on days like today, International Overdose Awareness Day.” ~ Ashley Brewer
