Hidden In Plain Sight

 

Prevention Services: Hidden In Plain Sight

Saturday, February 15, 2020

Register: https://www.barryrobinson.org/events/hidden-in-plain-sight/

Join Norfolk Community Services Board and Barry Robinson Center for a conversation about substance use in our community. We’ll show you what’s happening through an interactive program where signs of substance use are often “hidden in plain sight.”

You’ll walk through a typical teenage bedroom that’s set up with drug paraphernalia “Hidden in Plain Sight.”

This interactive display offers insights into current trends in youth substance abuse, drug paraphernalia, and concealment of illicit drugs and alcohol. This will be a safe place to talk with parents and community experts about drug trends, how to talk to youth about alcohol and drugs, and what to do if you suspect a problem. We’ll also share resources available to help you and your family. You’ll leave better informed and equipped to take action, if needed. Addressing problem behavior early is critical to prevent negative consequences of substance use, such as unsafe decisions and addiction.

 

 

Norfolk man presented with first ‘difference maker’ award

Norfolk man presented with first ‘difference maker’ award

 

Born and raised in Norfolk, Archie Boone truly embodies the phrase – defying all odds.

Archie was raised by a single mother in the Norview and Parkplace neighborhoods. His mother raised him to be honest and to say no to drugs, but around age 11 negative influences began creeping in. Archie turned to drugs and alcohol in part due to the influence of older cousins but also in large part because of some serious trauma they all experienced growing up.

One day in college, after passing out from drugs Archie woke up to a police officer and  Dean of Students in his dorm room. Instead of arresting him, the officer counseled him. The officer told him he needed to make a change now. And just like that, cold turkey, Archie stopped using any drugs. He says it was a divine moment for him. To him, it represented God‘s mercy. And in that moment, a foundation was laid for a new life. Archie went on to become that merciful lifeline for countless people in Norfolk.

When Archie began reaching out to addicts in our city, he himself was homeless, living in a car. He had three jobs, three kids, but he was determined not to give up. Though prevention became his passion, Archie did not feel worthy of the real title, an office, and official role in the city. He wanted to continue his work in the shadows. But in 2016, he landed a job with the community services board. And we’re glad he did. 

In the past three years Archie has traveled the country for training on how to battle the opioid epidemic. He learned how to administer Narcan, Archie is certified in revive Ovedose Prevention training in as to what many of our deputies how to administer Narcan. He also gave his time at the Something In The Water Festival, looking for any one showing signs of a possible overdose. Archie also writes his own rap music to get his message out to the kids in Norfolk communities.

Archie now works full time with Norfolk CSB and Norfolk Prevention Coalition. He is truly a difference maker in the city of Norfolk.

So Archie-for all you do to help others lives, for the example you have become for others who have a life story like yours, for making a difference- Congratulations.
