Overdose Awareness Announcement and Video

Friday, August 31st is International Overdose Awareness Day.  The goal is to spread the message that the tragedy of overdose death is preventable.  
North America continues to experience the highest drug-related mortality rate in the world, accounting for 1-in-4 drug-related deaths globally.  
In fact, in January 2017, the Centre for Disease Control estimated the number of people in the USA who died from overdose in the 12-month period prior was 64,070.
In Waterford, since January 2017, our Police and Fire Departments have responded to 159 overdose calls, the majority of which were opiate related.  
Fortunately, our first responders utilized the lifesaving drug Narcan and successfully saved 119 overdoses, and referred 6 individuals to services through the Hope Not Handcuffs program.       
Overdose Awareness Day aims to raise awareness about overdose, and reduce the stigma of a drug-related death.  
It seeks to acknowledge the grief felt by families and friends by remembering those who have died or had a permanent injury as a result of drug overdose, and offer resources to those currently struggling.    
If you, or someone you love is struggling with addiction and substance abuse there is help available.  
Oakland Community Health Network Substance Use Services provides confidential treatment services to Oakland County residents who have a current dependence on alcohol and/or other drugs. 
For more information contact the office at 248-464-6363 during regular business hours, or call Common Ground at 800-231-1127, after-hours.  For more information about the WTPD’s Hope Not Handcuff’s Program, call 248-674-0351.
