Into Action Treatment Sponsors NOPE Annual Candlelight Vigil
Date:10/21/2013

Boynton Beach, FL (PRWEB) October 21, 2013

To honor those men and women who have been lost to addiction, Into Action Treatment will assist with the sponsoring of the NOPE (Narcotics Overdose Prevention and Education) Annual Candlelight Vigil. The event is scheduled to take place on October 24, 2013. The vigil will be held at the Gosman Amphitheatre at the Kravis Center from 6 to 7 p.m. Into Action is one of several sponsors of the event. The vigil is especially meaningful to us because we have lost clients to the disease. Our CEO, Andrey Rossin, has himself overcome overdoses and coma in the past.

Because many of the clients of Into Action will be attending the vigil, the entire community will be able to come together to recognize the lives that have been lost to substance abuse. The event is designed to encourage others who may be suffering from addictive tendencies to seek help as soon as possible. Professionals and family members can help addicts turn around their lives so that they can engage with the world once again.

Removing the Stigma

The task force has long been dedicated to removing the stigma that has so often been associated with addiction. Candlelight vigils are meant to show that men and women who are suffering from addiction are not weak. In fact, addicts have certain biological or neurological tendencies that make them vulnerable to substance abuse. Addiction is an illness that requires treatment plans from certified professionals. Only when the stigma has been effectively eliminated will more people seek help at professional facilities. Educating others about the disease will ultimately help save lives going forward.

Encouraging Addicts to Seek Help

Addiction is in many cases a lifelong illness that must be managed carefully. The NOPE Task Force holds the annual candlelight vigil so that addicts and their families may begin to understand how serious the illness really is. In fact, around 30,000 Americans die of accidental drug overdoses each year. Many of these people never received proper care. By eradicating outside prejudice, the task force hopes to decrease the number of deaths going forward.

The NOPE Task Force and Hope for a Brighter Future

The task force is ultimately interested in making others aware of how quickly men and women can spiral into the black hole of addiction. While the vigil is meant to be a solemn affair, it is also designed to provide hope to individuals who are currently unable to remove themselves from their current situations. With help from Into Action Treatment, addicts can kick their addictions and begin to put their lives back in order. Through a treatment program that allows patients to develop a spiritual core, men and women will learn to participate in activities that will nourish both their bodies and their minds. With assistance from some of the best therapists and counselors in the region, patients can meet their therapeutic goals and eventually return to a world that is filled with happiness and sobriety.
