International Overdose Awareness Day – August 31, 2017

Everyday, we see lives around us being changed and lost to overdose.  Overdose does not discriminate – it could be you or someone you love, a friend, colleague or your neighbor.

This year on August 31st, International Overdose Awareness Day, Clark County, Indiana needs your support.

Get involved to prevent the tragedy of overdose. Knowing the drugs you take, its effects on your body and how to prevent overdose does make all the difference.

Join us on Thursday, August 31, 2017 at 8 p.m. at Ashland Park, in Clarksville for a walk to Jeffersonville’s Overlook and candlelight vigil (approximately 1 mile).  Please bring a photo of your loved one who has affected you and/or your family with substance abuse or overdose.  Also, please bring battery-operated candles/tea lights for the vigil, the breeze off the river will blow out our flames.

This event is not only for the “I Am Affected” group – we invite and challenge all other similar groups in the area to join us and show their concerns as well.

Come join us to understand how this affects each one of us. Come join us to remember the loved ones we have lost. It’s time to Remember. It’s time to Act.
