About this Event

The G.A.P. Network Regional Summit – Southeast Ohio

Every day accidental drug overdose claims 14 Ohioans, and those reeling from the loss of a loved one often don't know what to do with their grief.

The G.A.P. Network (Grief to Advocacy for Prevention) connects grieving families to resources and builds communication channels across Ohio to support advocacy, education, and prevention.

The G.A.P. Network Regional Summit was created to honor the lives lost to this epidemic of overdoses, help you become more resilient, and work through your grief. We will help you find your voice to help you speak on behalf of your loved ones and advocate for prevention.

The summit will:

  • Address grief and how to best cope with it.
  • Address stigma associated with substance misuse, abuse, and overdose.
  • Promote resiliency and advocacy for effective prevention and provide opportunity to engage in peer support.

Continuing Education

We will apply for Continuing Education from the Ohio Chemical Dependency Professionals Board.

About the GAP Network

The G.A.P. Network's mission is to provide support to families impacted by addiction and take action to create community change. Losing a loved one to an overdose is an incomparable loss. The grief from overdose loss is especially complex and can take years before you’re ready to move forward.

All too many parents have lost a loved one to an overdose. They came together to create The G.A.P. Network to provide a place of healing, support grieving parents, and advocate for prevention.
