Connecting. Supporting. Learning.

International Overdose Awareness Day (OAD) is observed all over the world on August 31. It is a day to acknowledge the grief felt by families and friends remembering those who have died from a drug overdose and serves to reduce the stigma of a drug-related death. Our keynote speaker is Lori Kuhn, RN-BC, Certified Grief Counselor, Grief Recovery Method Specialist. She has been personally impacted by the death of her daughter, Jennifer, from an overdose. Losing her child as well as her husband within a four-year period, Lori will talk about her journey through processing her grief to becoming whole, happy, and able to move forward with her life.
