All are welcome!

Please click here to register now.

The United States is in the center of an overdose epidemic. In 2017, out of the 61,311 preventable drug overdoses, more than 43,000 were involved in opioids. The International Overdose Awareness Day is held to remember and acknowledge all those gone too soon due to overdose deaths.

The International Overdose Awareness Day is an annual global event, usually held on August 31. This aims to raise awareness of overdose and help decrease the stigma of drug-related deaths. It also aims to acknowledge the grief that the families and friends feel, to remember those who have passed away or suffered permanent injury due to drug overdose. This is also held to spread the message that the tragedy of death from overdose is preventable.

BALM Family Recovery Resources held the live event and is now proud to continue offering the program On-Demand. 

Our keynote speaker is Dr. Barbara Andraka-Christou, author of the book “The Opioid Fix: America’s Addiction Crisis and the Solution They Don’t Want You to Have.”

* Naloxone training

* An interview with a parent who lost their child to an opioid overdose

Bonus Six Session On-Demand Course For Families enrolled in the One-Year BALM Program:

What: Introduction to Heart Math 

The BALM is famous for bringing its members a wide variety of tools and techniques to increase their ability to get their own life back while becoming their loved one's BEST chance at recovery. Heart Math is an additional process we are bringing to our families to enhance your ability to practice Steps 1-3. This course is being provided as a gift to our community by one of our BALM Coaches, Anne Marie Clear, who has been practicing Heart Math for 25 years and came to the BALM two years ago to be able to address the special challenges SUD brings. She says that her practice of Heart Math accelerated her ability to internalize the BALM and the BALM improved and enhanced her relationships, helping her to be her loved one's BEST chance. As a result, she is generously sharing the Heart Math tools with all of us! 

When: On-Demand Only for BALM Members after the live Course Completes in mid-June

For: All BALM Families, Coaches, Specialists, Faculty and Staff 


Anne Marie Clear, MA in Counseling, Licensed Heart Math Trainer, Trained BALM Family Recovery Coach, Certified True Purpose Coach
