[ARCHIVED] Learn About Opiate Addiction

Woodbridge Youth Services, Amity Regional School District, the FBI and DEA and the U.S. District Attorney are hosting a movie, Chasing the Dragon: The Life of an Opiate Addict, followed by a panel discussion with medical professionals, law enforcement and recovering addicts. 

The movie will show on Wednesday Jan. 11 at 6 p.m. at the high school (25 Newton Road).

According to the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,“Drug overdose deaths are the leading cause of injury death in the United States, ahead of motor vehicle deaths and firearms (deaths).” Of the nearly 50,000 annual drug-related deaths, more than half are caused by prescription drugs and heroin.
