On Monday, October 11, Samaritas is honoring Substance Abuse Prevention Month with a virtual conversation about the causes and consequences of excessive use of drugs.
Detroit Red Wings announcer Ken Daniels will help lead the discussion. Daniels lost his own son to an opioid overdose in December 2016. Jamie Daniels was only 23-years-old when he passed away in his sleep.
“Memories of Jamie are now, sadly, and tragically linked to his experience with addiction. He should be remembered for the loving, kind and funny kid he was and his huge heart. Jamie would do anything to help anyone. He was an incredible son, a protective big brother and best friend to his sister, Arlyn and he was a loyal friend.”
The heartfelt tribute comes from Jamie’s mother, Lisa Daniels-Goldman. You can learn more about Jamie’s journey and the foundation launched in his honor to make a difference for others.
Ken Daniels will be joined by a panel of experts for a one-hour virtual conversation, starting at 11:30am on October 11. The discussion will take place over Zoom. You don’t have to have your camera on, nor do you have to actively participate; you can simply listen if you prefer.
Registration and attendance are free — and the information you learn could help change a life.
