Medication, Intervention, Education and Awareness are the four words that the non-profit End Overdose refers to when talking about the solution to saving a life from an overdose. It’s common to associate the term ‘overdose’ with death however, the two aren’t necessarily synonymous. It’s possible to survive an overdose or save someone from an overdose. And, it’s even more possible to avoid one entirely. That’s where the End Overdose organization comes in.
The growing non-profit “provides the necessary training and tools to reverse and prevent loss of life,” according to their website. Based in Los Angeles, the organization trains over a thousand people a month through their online program alone, shared Theo Krzywicki, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of End Overdose.
