Information regarding County presentation on opioid abuse...

Chasing the Dragon
The Life of an Opiate Addict

"Chasing the Dragon," a joint production of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Administration, was created to raise awareness about heroin and opioid abuse in the United States, and chronicles how drug abuse devastates lives and draws attention to the prescription drug and heroin epidemic in the United States. The 45-minute documentary contains several case studies of people who either became addicted to opiates themselves or had family members who were addicted. Not recommended for children age of 12 or younger.
