As we’ve been reporting, heroin and opiate abuse continues to be a major problem affecting our community. Use, overdoses, deaths and arrests are all up. In an effort to combat the growing epidemic of prescription drug and heroin abuse, the FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration have released “Chasing the Dragon: The Life of an Opiate Addict,” a documentary aimed at educating students and young adults about the dangers of addiction. Caution: portions of this video may be difficult to watch.
