Have you lost someone to overdose? For too many of us, the answer is yes.

International Overdose Awareness Day is August 31. VARP (a group of drug and alcohol rehab facilities) is joining in this global effort to remember those who have died of overdose, and to save the lives of possible future victims.

VARP staff, and the consumers in our men’s, women’s, and outpatient programs, will participate in a variety of activities in observation of International Overdose Awareness Day:
17 VARP buildings will be lit up in purple during the week leading up to August 31.
Candlelight vigil and balloon release, in remembrance of overdose victims, on August 31.
Picture, banner and yard memorials, paying tribute to overdose victims.
Special groups and movie screenings related to the overdose crisis.
Social media campaign.
Lanyards and wristbands for consumers and staff.
Posters on display throughout VARP.
And much more!
