Event Details


In NYC, drug overdose is the third leading cause of premature death, after cancer and heart disease. Almost 2 people die of a drug overdose every day.


On September 9, 2014, (1pm to 5 pm), the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene will host the 1st Annual  NYC Overdose Awareness Day to raise awareness about opioid overdose and to commemorate those who have been lost. 

Programming will include an overdose responder training and dispensing of OD Rescue Kits with Naloxone (Narcan) -- a medication that reverses the effects of overdose and can save lives, a presentation by Bureau of Alcohol and Drug, Prevention, Care and Treatment highlighting work currently being done to address the overdose crisis in NYC and a panel discussion with those directly impacted.
