International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD)
August 31 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
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.
Join us for a public event to remember those who have been lost to Substance Use Disorder via a Candlelight Vigil, to honor those in recovery and to educate others in the magnitude of overdoses.
James’ Place is excited to co-sponsor this second annual event in Howard County with the Howard County Health Dept.
Resource Tables open 5:30-7:00 pm; Program 7:00-8:00 pm
