Battle Creek will be hosting a special event next week in order to help fight opioid addiction and overdoses.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports that the program, put on by the National Alliance on Mental Illness Calhoun County, will feature speakers from Summit Pointe about opiate dangers and addiction; speeches will also be held by two women who were a part of creating Michigan’s Good Samaritan law, which allows people to seek help if they or someone else are overdosing without worrying about being charged for drug possession.

The event takes place Tuesday, November 14 at 6:30pm at the Kool Family Community Center.
