Date:8/28/2013

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Alcohol Justice is reporting that the Los Angeles chapter of A New PATH will join the Drug Policy Alliance, Cri-Help, Inc., Paso Por Paso, Broken No More, Alcohol Justice and other organizations throughout the U.S. and abroad participating in the 13th annual International Overdose Awareness Day on Saturday, August 31. The day honors and remembers those who have lost their lives to an accidental overdose. It is also an opportunity to educate policymakers and the public about the growing overdose crisis in the United States – and to offer concrete solutions that save lives.

Join us on Saturday, August 31 at 10:15 am at Cri-Help, Inc., Socorro Campus – 2010 N. Lincoln Park Ave. L.A.; we will walk in a funeral procession from Lincoln Park to the front of the L.A. County Coroner's office - 1104 N. Mission Rd. by 11:15; then on to the steps of the USC Medical Center – 1200 N. State. St., where, at 11:45 am, we will stage a "Die In" and press conference to bring awareness to those lost through accidental overdose. We are demanding greater access to Naloxone for overdose prevention, and working to eliminate stigma by treating drug overdoses like any other medical emergency.

This "performance art" happening is part of the national Moms United to End the War on Drugs campaign (A project of A New PATH). "My son is a survivor of overdose. Thankfully a 'Good Samaritan' took him to the hospital after his friends dropped him off at home, unconscious, for fear of police involvement. It is frustrating and maddening that so many other families are dealing with this tragic and avoidable loss," sai
