FBI, DEA Release Documentary Aimed at Youth
In an effort to help educate students and young adults about the dangers of opioid addiction, the FBI and DEA unveiled a documentary called Chasing the Dragon: The Life of an Opiate Addict at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., before an audience of educational leaders from the region. The 45-minute film, the title of which refers to the never-ending pursuit of the “original or ultimate high,” features stark first-person accounts told by individuals who have abused opioids or whose children have done so with tragic consequences.
