Black Monday Event Calls Attention to Addiction, Those Loved and Lost

Posted By on Sun, Feb 10, 2013 at 10:01 AM

Janice Nargi started There is No Hero in Heroin, a foundation that provides community education and support to families dealing with addiction, with a Black Monday event last year calling attention to loved ones lost to addiction and those who've overcome addiction.

Tomorrow, Nargi and her organization do it again with its second Black Monday event in front of Tucson City Hall, 25W. Alameda St., 5:30 p.m. Balloons will be released — "black for those currently in addiction, red for loved ones lost from addiction (OD) and white for those who overcame."

Need help right now? Nargi hosts a support group on Sundays, today, 4 p.m. at 4653 E. Pima St. For more information, you can call 219-7974. There's also a help line for immediate assistance: 329-3098. Also, for more on Nargi's foundation, visit tinhihfoundation-com.webs.com/
