Today is International Overdose Awareness Day #IOAD2020 and it is important to remember that survivors of abuse can turn to drugs to cope with their trauma. Being under the influence during a domestic violence episode increases the risk for serious injury and hospitalization. By raising awareness for drug use and overdoses, we can also bring awareness to domestic violence and sexual assault.
If you or someone you know needs help due to domestic violence, call our crisis line at 910-347-4000.
#onslowwomenscenter #domesticviolenceawareness #loveshouldnthurt

Today, in every corner of the world, is International Overdose Awareness Day.

This year has been harder than most.

We have lost so many loved ones.

But today we remember those we've lost, love the people left behind, and pledge to do all we can to #EndOverdose.

It is important to remember that survivors all present their traumas in different ways and all are valid.
PTSD is very common in survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Making sure survivors know that it is normal and understandable to go through emotional and psychological changes after abuse is paramount in their healing journey.
If you or someone you know needs to speak with someone about domestic violence or sexual assault, please reach out to our advocates at 910-347-4000

We are aware there are exceptions and will adhere to those as well. Thank you for your understanding and most of all for all the support you provide to support our mission.

With states beginning to open public places back up and allow residents out of quarantine, this may be an opportunity for you to see friends or family you haven't seen in a while. It is important to recognize the signs of abuse so you can help those who may have been trapped with their abusers for weeks and are just now able to get away from their homes.
If you are concerned that someone you know has been a victim of domestic violence check out the tips below to learn how to support and encourage them through this traumatic time. Give them our crisis line number 910-347-4000 and encourage them to speak with one of our advocates.
