Hanley Foundation, a statewide leader in substance use disorder prevention, education and advocacy for access to quality treatment, has announced several new locations and an updated schedule for its ongoing Project C4OPE (Connect for Overdose Prevention and Education): A Forum Series for Families in the Opioid Crisis.

Hanley Foundation’s free-of-charge Project C4OPE forums – funded through a partnership with Palm Beach County, the Southeast Florida Behavioral Health Network and the Alice Busch Gronewaldt Fund of Palm Healthcare Foundation – are designed to connect people in our community who share the experience of a loved one who has died of opioid overdose, survived an overdose, or are at high risk for overdose.

The forums cover topics of interest to families in the crisis such as non-addictive strategies to manage chronic pain, raising the level of opioid prescriber education, medication-assisted treatment (MAT), overdose-reversing medications and other topics identified as important by the family members. The forums are facilitated by Hanley Foundation’s Director of Education Barbara Shafer, and often include guest speakers to address key topics.

The schedule for Project C4OPE is:
NORTH COUNTY: 1st Thursday of each month – Oceanside United Methodist Church, 701 Ocean Dr., Juno Beach
WESTERN REGION: 2nd Thursday of each month – St. Michael Lutheran Church, 1925 Birkdale Dr., Wellington
