Upcoming screening of opiate addiction documentary

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - The FBI Birmingham Citizens Academy Alumni Association, the FBI and the DEA are hosting a screening of "Chasing the Dragon, the Life of an Opiate Addict," a documentary about addiction.

The viewing will be followed by a panel discussion.

Admission to the screening is free and open to the public, but registration is required.

The purpose of the event is to raise awareness of drug abuse and the profound downward spiral that is caused by opiate addiction.
