Accidental fatal overdose is the leading cause of injury-related death in the U.S., and the leading cause of death among people who use drugs around the world. 129 people are dying each day in the U.S. from accidental overdose. We encourage sensible solutions such as increased access to overdose reversal medication naloxone & implementing Good Samaritan 911 policies.
