2nd Annual Keeping Hope: Overdose Awareness & Remembrance Day

August 29, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

Join us for an evening of remembrance, education and hope.

International Overdose Awareness Day acknowledges the grief felt by families and friends and remembers those who have died due to drug overdose. The day helps reduce the stigma of Substance Use Disorder (SUD), showing that recovery is possible and that overdoses can be prevented.

Gift bags with Program, grief support, solutions to SUD and more

Drive up resource tables offering Narcan/harm reduction resources, # End Overdose shirts, wrist bands and pins for donation, water & packaged snacks

Volusia County Proclamation for IOAD

Speakers who have been impacted by overdose

Time of remembrance for loved ones who have died due to overdose along with short reflections by family members

Remembrance Ceremony

This will be a drive in event where participants watch from the comfort of their car and tune in to 88.5 on their radio. There will be some physically distanced seating available, both in the chapel and outside. CDC Recommendations are being followed during this event.

For those unable to make the event in person, we will be broadcasting on VRA’s Facebook live feed at the same time. A great opportunity to create your own small gathering and participate in the comfort of your home.

The Volusia Recovery Alliance event is sponsored by Daytona Beach Drive-In Christian Church and SMA Healthcare.
