"Chasing the Dragon"
The 45-minute film, whose title 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 abused opioids, with tragic consequences. The film will be followed by a panel discussion including Dr. Jeffery Reihl, an emergency room physician and Rosiland Watkins, a parent who lost her son to addiction.
