Candlelight vigil hopes to bring awareness to drug addiction, overdose deaths
Tonight, SpectraCare will host a candlelight vigil beginning at 7 p.m. at the Angel of Hope located at Westgate Park- 501 Recreation Dr. Dothan, AL 36303. Ninety-three thousand Americans lost their lives to a drug overdose in 2020. That number is 29% higher than it was in 2019. We hope this event will bring awareness to the opioid epidemic and help end the stigma that often accompanies drug addiction, especially honoring the lives lost to overdoses.
Overdose is preventable and SpectraCare will be providing useful resources at the event. Also, there will be a guest speaker to share how he found hope while overcoming his battle with addiction, followed by the candlelight vigil.
We welcome anyone wishing to be a part of tonight's event to please attend. If you need more information, please contact Marlene Lassiter, Prevention Specialist, at 800-951-4357 ext. 3003.
