BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- Monday is National Overdose Awareness Day, and one local organization says it's a problem that hits close to home.
Voices Recovery Center in Binghamton used the day to raise addiction awareness.
The center held an event at its Prospect Street location where people could share stories of their struggles. Addiction counselors were also there to help.
The director of the center, Jeffrey Eaddy-El, says it's important to show people what's happening in their own community.
"Not too long ago we had an epidemic of Fentanyl and Heroine overdoses and this is just one of many ways that Voices Recovery Center makes it known to the public," said Eaddy-El about the event.
Voices Recovery is a non-clinical facility that offers different events and groups to help those battling addiction.
