Overdose Awareness Vigil Happening in Clinton
The International Overdose Awareness Day is a global event held on August 31 each year, and aims to raise awareness and reduce the stigma of addiction and overdose.
Addiction Does Not Discriminate. It does not care what age you are, where you live, or how rich or poor you are—it can take away your brother, your sister, your mother, your father, your son or daughter—and it does not matter whether they struggle with alcohol addiction or drug addiction; it can take away anyone and everyone, regardless of who they are or what their lives were like before they started using drugs and alcohol.
Tonight, Tuesday August 31, 2021, from 5:00PM-8:30PM, the 4th Annual Overdose and Addiction Awareness Vigil will be happening at the Riverview Bandshell located at 251, Ball Park Drive, (Across from Riverview Pool) in Clinton, Iowa
Clinton CRUSH+ is an organization that stands for Community Resources United to Stop Heroin and other drugs. CRUSH+ strives to provide viable resources within the community to combat the opioid epidemic through identification, education, treatment and prevention.
It’s easy to feel helpless when you or a loved one struggles with addiction. But there are many ways you can help fight back against heroin, fentanyl, and other opioids that plague communities everywhere.
The theme of the vigil is “Ending Addiction Changes Everything.” This will be an evening of education and awareness, as well as an opportunity to pay tribute to those lost to overdoses and struggling or recovering from addiction.
