International Overdose Awareness Day
Candlelight Vigil
Wednesday August 31, 2016
7:00-9:00 pm Rain or Shine
Lyman Point Park WRJ, VT

Have you or someone you know been affected by addiction?
Let’s show our community we care.

Due to the high number of overdose deaths that our community has experienced, some community members, led by Scott MacDonald, have gotten together in an effort to organize a candlelight vigil for August 31, 2016. There will be guest speakers, information from many different recovery organizations, as well as Narcan training and distribution for those who are interested. Our mission is to increase addiction awareness in our community and to remember those lives that have been lost, those currently battling addiction, and those in recovery.

International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD) is a global event held on August 31st each year and aims to raise awareness of overdose and reduce the stigma of a drug-related death. It also acknowledges the grief felt by families and friends remembering those who have met with death or permanent injury as a result of drug overdose. Overdose Day spreads the message that the tragedy of overdose death is preventable.
