On August, 31st thousands of Americans who are fed up with the opioid epidemic will come together all over the United States. Families, organizations, and officials will unite to march and mourn the death toll addiction has had on our community. If you want to attend a local fed up rally you can in Boca Raton, FL. There will be a march from Life of Purpose Recovery to FAU Kaye Performing arts building. Love one’s memories will be honored with a candle light ceremony after the march and few stories and speakers.
If you have lost someone to the disease of addiction they recommend you make posters to march with and submit stories to feduprally.org Also if you would like to get involved it is not too late, volunteer opportunities are available. There is an epidemic sweeping the U.S, over prescription of pain pills has lead to tremendous increase in heroin use, injection related deaths, infants born addicted, and overdose deaths. Even if you have no direct experience the pain addiction brings to a family we request your support in impacting the government and community to help take a stand to the Opioid Epidemic.
Community involvement is key when standing up to a crisis like this so we hope to see everyone out there.
