TODAY IS OVERDOSE AWARENESS DAY
With the increasing drug problem in countries all over the world, in many cases, tragedies happen. For those who suffer from the consequences of overdose, it can be hard for families to cope with the after-effects of what happened. It can also be hard for people who don’t understand to find sympathy for those families. Overdose Awareness Day is all about bridging the gap between those who don’t understand and those who know it all too well.
