The Community Collaborative for Youth & Families presents "Chasing the Dragon, the Life of an Opiate Addict"

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Join us for a viewing of this powerful documentary followed by a panel discussion; from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m., light refreshments will be offered.

In an effort to combat the growing epidemic of prescription drug and heroin abuse, the FBI and DEA released "Chasing the Dragon: The Life of an Opiate Addict."  This documentary was filmed in part at the Rappahannock Regional Jail.

There will be five screenings throughout Planning District 6.  Following each screening, there will be a discussion about the crisis and what individuals and families can do to prevent their loved ones from becoming addicted.  Community resource and treatment information will be available.

The viewings are FREE and open to the public.  Community leaders, parents, teachers, and all concerned citizens are encouraged to attend.  (Warning: The film contains graphic content and language.  Parent discretion is advised.)
