More about our Coalition
International Overdose Awareness Day

International Overdose Awareness Day

Thank you to the community members who #worepurple in support of International Overdose Awareness Day on 8/31/2020. Here in our beloved community of Oceanside we have lost far too many to this tragedy. Since COVID 19, almost all 50 states have reported increases in opioid related mortality as well as ongoing concerns for those with mental illness and/or substance use disorder. There has never been a more crucial time to increase awareness, evidenced-based services and to commemorate the lives we have lost.
