Opioid Awareness Breakfast And Training Seminar At Wellington Green

Rachelle Crain and Micah Robbins.

More than 100 local business owners from the Building Us Network and throughout Palm Beach County gathered recently in the District at the Mall at Wellington Green to learn more about a lifesaving drug and how it can potentially save lives in the workplace.

On Friday, May 24, the Community Recovery HUB of Palm Beach County hosted a special opioid awareness breakfast and Naloxone (Narcan) training workshop.

Executive Director Micah Robbins led the Narcan seminar, which included how to recognize the signs and symptoms of an opioid emergency and how to properly administer the nasal spray to reverse the effects of an overdose.

The seminar’s special guest was community activist Pastor Rae Whitely of the Trinity Counseling Center. “Community involvement is the key to overcoming this disease,” he said. “It’s the future generation, our youth, that we need to protect.”

Community Recovery HUB of Palm Beach County is located at 2120 W. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach. For more information, call (866) 472-2482 or visit www.pbchub.org.
