Know Overdose Nevada County is a local campaign to increase knowledge and awareness about drug overdose risks and harm reduction strategies to help prevent overdoses and deaths.

Like many other communities across the state and country, Nevada County has seen an increase in overdose deaths in the past few years. This has largely been a result of synthetic opioids, particularly fentanyl, entering the local drug supply.

Our diverse coalition of community supporters believes improving access to information and resources and increasing awareness of harm reduction strategies are an important part of reversing this trend and preventing overdose deaths.
