NC Rotary Club Learns About Inhalant Abuse

Nick Petrakis recently spoke to the Cleveland School Rotary Club in North Carolina. He spoke about “substance abuse, specifically Inhalant Abuse, the signs the everyday citizens can look for in their friends, families, and colleagues, and the preventative measures that can be taken.”

Nick has a personal attachment to this issue, having lost his brother (age 37) to Inhalants in May 2008.

During the presentation he “showed a short compelling video about the dangers and warning signs of Inhalant Abuse” and “provided a pamphlet detailing tips for talking to children and teens as well as what to do in case of an emergency.”

It also notes, “Mr. Petrakis continues to make it his mission to get the word out. If you'd like more information on the subject of Inhalant Abuse or would like to have Nick speak at your next meeting, please contact him at”
Thank you Nick, for all of your work in helping to make more families and communities aware of this devastating issue.
