U.S. Attorney's Office Presents Chasing the Dragon: The Life of an Opiate Addict

Those who have watched friends and loved ones struggle with opioid addiction know all too well that prison and death are very real risks, and that recovery is possible, though hard-fought. Utah has a high rate of prescription drug use and abuse, which is feeding an increased demand for cheap heroin and synthetic opioids. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Utah is committed to prosecuting opioid-related crimes and to preventing drug abuse and addiction. In partnership with the SSU Department of Political Science and Criminal Justice, the U.S. Attorney's Office is recognizing this epidemic by screening Chasing the Dragon – a documentary about heroin and opiate use. A panel discussion with law enforcement and treatment providers will follow. September 20, 2017 at 7 p.m. Southern Utah University Sterling R. Church Auditorium 351 West University Boulevard Cedar City, UT 84720
