LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Friday is National Overdose Awareness day and on Thursday a service is being held in Lafayette for healing addicts and their loved ones.

A Better Life Brianna's Hope is hosting the third annual Healing and Hope Service. The event will start with a community dinner followed by a panel of guest speakers. Guests include someone who is in the early and later stages of recovery. Information will be shared on what the different pathways to recovery can look like.

"Yes it is a family disease and the recovery community should be a family community as well and we all need to be together and supporting one another in whatever type of support that is and it does vary from children to teenagers to adults," said Jason Padgett, Director of Grace Recovery Ministries.
