International Overdose Awareness Day – Jamie’s Story

International Overdose Awareness Day 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 because of a drug overdose.
Overdose Day spreads the message that the tragedy of overdose death is preventable. Wear Silver to show your support.

DANA was approached by a young woman, Jodie Hobbs, who was prepared to share her family’s tragic story about the loss of a beloved brother, Jamie,  to an overdose. You can read Jodie’s and Jamie’s moving story by clicking here, Jamie’s story by Jodie
