The Carter County Substance Abuse Memorial is a time for the community to come together and remember those who have been lost to substance abuse. A candlelight vigil is held during the event along with music and personal testimonials. Reducing the stigma surrounding substance use disorders is important, so we use this time to support those in recovery and provide local resources to attendees. Free food is available and we will have a drawing for door prizes. We have several community sponsors for the event. Thank you to our sponsors who helped make this event possible: Chick-Fil-A, Define Your Direction, DOT Foods, First United Methodist Church, Lighthouse Behavioral Wellness Centers, Oxford House, Salvation Army, Stevens Media Group, and Wichita Mountains Prevention Network.
