www.overdoselifesavers.org is Australia’s first dedicated website presenting carefully researched personal stories of opioid overdose and the use of take-home naloxone to save lives. The website has two aims. First, it aims to support people affected by opioid overdose and thinking about using take-home naloxone. Second, it aims to inform the public about overdose and what can be done about it. Overall it seeks to look beyond the statistics and recognise that behind each death from overdose was a human life that had its own story and remains connected to the lives and stories of others.
This website sheds light on the stories of people affected by overdose and explores the different ways people who consume drugs manage overdose.
