Marin Recognizes Overdose Awareness Day
The Marin County Board of Supervisors passed a resolution recognizing August 31 as International Overdose Awareness Day. Our elected leaders have prioritized this issue since the launch of RxSafe Marin in 2014. Board members received a report outlining the coalition’s progress, including a 48 percent reduction countywide in opioid prescribing over four years.  The announcement, along with coalition plans to increase access for addiction treatment, raised awareness through local media including this Independent Journal article.
