#192aDay Campaign

In June 2016 the Addiction Policy Forum launched #129aDay, an awareness and action campaign based on the Center for Disease Control's numbers of 129 lives lost a day due to a drug overdose in 2014. In December 2016, new CDC data showed an increase of daily drug overdose deaths from 129 a day in 2014 to 144 a day in 2015, to 174 a day in 2016 and now to 192 a day in 2017.

 

#192aDay represents the number of individuals who die each day from a substance use disorder: parents, siblings, children, cousins, aunts, uncles and friends. 

 

Together, we can end this epidemic.
