On May 22, staff members from Merakey Parkside Recovery attended a training led by Sarah Laurel, Founder and Executive Director of Savage Sisters Recovery entitled, “Xylazine: A New Drug Additive.” The training provided national and statewide opioid statistics and updates on current drug supply trends and wound care issues, including critical information on Xylazine. The training also included a Narcan refresher focused on overdose reversal procedures when the presence of Xylazine is suspected with Narcan resources. Everyone in attendance found the training to be informative and helpful.
