Welcome to
Overdose Lifeline

A nonprofit dedicated to helping individuals, families, and communities affected by substance use disorder. We work to prevent overdoses through education, prevention and advocacy.

Substance Use Disorder Help When and Where It’s Needed

Overdose due to opioid use has become a leading cause of death in the US. Today, Americans are more likely to die due to an overdose than they are from cars and guns. Yet services, specifically those aimed at overdose prevention and substance use help, do not meet the growing opioid crisis.

Overdose Lifeline’s objective is not only to increase access to overdose prevention and education services but also to remove the stigma of addiction and provide proper care and access to treatment for those at risk.
