Public Invited to Attend Film Viewing About Drug Addiction


The public is invited to attend the viewing of a new documentary about drug addiction.

The Exponent Telegram reports the film, “Chasing the Dragon: The Life of an Opiate Addict,” is slated for its first public viewing in West Virginia on April 7 at 6 p.m. at Fairmont State University in Fairmont.

The documentary was produced by the FBI and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

FBI Community Outreach Specialist Holly Henry says the film documents the stories of multiple people, from young addicts to soccer moms, who battled addictions.

It was first screened about a month ago in the District of Columbia.

Thursday’s viewing will be followed by an interactive discussion.
