On Tuesday August 31, 2021, from 5:00PM-8:30PM, Clinton community professionals and community members will hold our 3rd Annual Overdose and Addiction Awareness Vigil. The theme of the vigil is “Ending Addiction Changes Everything.” This will be an evening of education and awareness, as well as an opportunity to pay tribute to those lost to overdoses and struggling or recovering from addiction. The International Overdose Awareness Day is a global event held on August 31st each year, and aims to raise awareness and reduce the stigma of addiction and overdose.

The CDC estimates that 81,230 drug overdose deaths occurred from June 2019 to May 2020. Overdose death rates in the U.S. have more than doubled over the past decade, surpassing motor vehicle accidents as the leading cause of injury-related death in the country. The opioid epidemic is a National Challenge that needs a community solution. This part of creating awareness, is one piece of our community solution.

The 4th Annual Overdose & Addiction Awareness Vigil Events will be held on August 31, 2021, from 5:00 – 8:30PM, at the Riverview Bandshell located at 251, Ball Park Drive, (Across from Riverview Pool) in Clinton, Iowa.
