We are recognizing those that go unseen! We will have 3 speakers share their stories of how overdose has impacted their lives. Including first responders, someone who has survived an overdose, and someone from the local ER. We have a Narcan training and demonstration, with Narcan available free to our attendees. We will discuss the Good Samaritan Law and the substance issues of our communities. We have a memorial board for anyone that would like to place a photo/name of someone that they have lost to overdose. We have a special prayer for everyone that has been effected and we end our evening with a candlelight vigil and walk.

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

Sign up to the International Overdose Awareness Day newsletter and become part of the global movement to end overdose.
