Remembrance and Hope Memorial Vigil

The Camden County Board of Commissioners and the Addiction Awareness Task Force invite family and friends to remember the loved ones we lost and spread the message of hope to those still fighting the disease of addiction. Help raise awareness of the crisis we’re facing within our community. 

Let’s erase the stigma and advocate for change. 

 

 

International Overdose Awareness Day

International Overdose Awareness day is August 31, 2022. It is a day where individuals, families, colleagues, and neighbor’s worldwide come together to remember those lost to addiction by overdose. 

On August 31st, all of us in Camden County’s Addiction Awareness Task Force will take the time to remember these losses.  The Ben Franklin Bridge, Florio Center and City Hall in Camden will be colored in purple.   The Remembrance And Hope Memorial Vigil will take place on Wednesday, August 31, 2022 at 7:30 PM at Timber Creek Park, 236 Taylor Avenue & Chews Landing Road, Blackwood, NJ

Please consider wearing something purple on August 31st.   Take pictures of your unit and share photos with us at #OverdoseAwarenessDayCC. Let us respect the power of the disease!  You can also forward them to patty.direnzo@camdencounty.com

Let us have a good show of support here at the Department of Health & Human Services.  If you encounter anyone who is seeking help in Camden County, please contact 877-266-8222 or the Office of Mental Health & Addiction at (856) 374-6320.
