Thursday, August 31, 5:00 – 9:00 pm at the Levitt Pavilion
The Community Overdose Action Team invites you to join us for Overdose Awareness Day on Thursday, August 31, from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the Levitt Pavilion in downtown Dayton. The day is dedicated to raising awareness about the devastating impact of drug overdoses and honoring the lives lost to substance abuse. This day serves as a reminder of the tragic consequences of addiction and aims to educate the public, support individuals struggling with substance use, and advocate for effective prevention and treatment measures.
Overdose Awareness Day strives to break the stigma surrounding drug addiction and overdose. By fostering understanding and empathy, the event seeks to promote compassion and support for those affected by addiction.
Attendees will have a chance to learn about the signs of overdose, available treatment options, harm reduction strategies, and how naloxone can be used to reverse opioid overdoses. The evening also provides an opportunity to highlight the importance of early intervention, access to quality healthcare, and the need for comprehensive support systems to address addiction.
The evening will feature a live performance by Dave Hause and the Mermaid on the Levitt Pavilion stage starting at 7:00 pm.
By commemorating those who have lost their lives to overdose, promoting prevention and treatment efforts, and supporting individuals on their journey to recovery, this day strives to inspire positive change and reduce the devastating impact of addiction on society.
Overdose Awareness Day is presented by the Community Overdose Action Team, Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County and OneFifteen.
