This quilt has been lovingly crafted to create an opportunity for individuals and families to come together to remember and memorialize their loved ones in a supportive and caring environment. TriCircle Inc. will display this quilt to the community in an effort to reduce stigma and create meaningful conversations about substance use and the disease of addiction. TriCircle, Inc. hopes that by putting the faces of those who have died in the forefront, we will reinforce the need to create long term solutions and make the valuable changes necessary to improve the system of care and recovery. TriCircle, Inc. greatly appreciates the support, participation and contributions made by all those involved in the creation of our first quilt.
This idea was part of a statewide Remembrance Quilt Initiative that was launched in 2017 by Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services with resources provided through Connecticut Clearinghouse. This initiative honors loved ones who have died from a substance use disorder and the disease of addiction.
