An opioid and prescription drug abuse epidemic is sweeping the country, impacting all segments of society.
To help raise awareness of this growing epidemic, The Milford Kiwanis Club has partnered with Milford Prevention Council to offer a free public showing of the FBI documentary “Chasing the Dragon: The Life of an Opioid Addict.” This 45-minute documentary examines the epidemic of prescription drug and opioid abuse from first-person accounts by addicts and their family members about their experiences.
Following the viewing an open forum discussion, moderated by Charles Grady, Community Outreach Specialist/Media Liaison of the FBI, along with insight from local medical specialists, will help families and the local community have open and honest communication about addiction and be better prepared to avoid becoming a victim.
