The event will be an opportunity to remember those lost to a drug overdose, as well as to recognize those who continue to be challenged by their substance use disorder. Recovery is possible. Resources will be available and people are invited to share their experience or remember a loved one. The event will conclude with closing remarks by Reverend Sara Smith, UCC.

Fairfield CARES thanks the following organizations and individuals for their collaboration on this event: High Focus Treatment Centers, CCAR of Bridgeport, Jim Savage, Child & Family Guidance Center, Recovery Centers of American, Silver Hill Hospital, the Progressive Institute, and Liberation Programs.

Overdose affects everyone. From grieving families to spontaneous first responders, the impacts of overdose are far-reaching and fall indiscriminately.
