WHO WE ARE

O.D. Aid is a grassroots nonprofit group in Fort Worth, Texas whose goal is to prevent fatal drug overdoses and reduce harms to our community.

Many of us have loved ones who struggle with substance use or have lost someone we love to overdose. 

We are a 501(c)(3) with no official affiliations, major funding, or alternative motivations than real, achievable goals: 

THE FACTS

​The opioid crisis is growing nationwide with deadly effect. Rather than wait for responses from policymakers through public health initiatives, community response has become an effective form of intervention to reducing overdose deaths. 

OUR PLANS

Opioid overdose mortality presents a solvable public health problem and is reversible through the timely administration of a medication called naloxone accompanied by emergency care.

People with training and access to naloxone can effectively prevent deaths from overdose. We can empower our communities without the help of official agencies or politicians and become capable of recognizing and responding to opioid overdoses. β€‹

Here in Fort Worth, we are hosting free overdose prevention trainings, distributing naloxone, and finding ways to support vulnerable drug-using populations in an effort to save lives.
