Every year, people across the country (and world) participate in a black balloon release to bring awareness to the opioid epidemic and honor those that have passed from an overdose.

Join the Western Maine Addiction Recovery Initiative on March 6th in a virtual balloon release on Facebook and social media to remember those that lost their lives. We will also be handing out awareness posters throughout Oxford County for businesses to display. If you want a free sign, please email karitaylor@wmari.org.
