Saturday, September 14, 2019

A candlelight vigil for those who lost their lives from opioid overdose will be part of the Opioid Overdose – Prevention and Remembrance Day put on by the South Florida Wellness Network (SFWN) on Saturday, September 14 at Arts Park in downtown Hollywood. There will also be live music, food trucks and resource tables with information from agencies dealing with various aspects of the health, social and economic dimensions of the crisis in opioid misuse. South Florida Wellness Network is a peer-run, not-for-profit agency that works for recovery, resiliency and wellness for adults, youth and families in Broward County. SFWN provides peer support, education and resources to those coping with substance misuse and mental health challenges in Broward communities. SFWN is also actively engaged in training community, education and professional groups in the use of NARCAN. Narcan is an inexpensive drug that reverses the effects of opioid overdose.
