Loyola will show its support of National Heroin and Opioid Awareness Week next week through a free screening of the FBI and DEA produced documentary “Chasing the Dragon: The Life of an Opiate Addict” Monday, Sept. 19 at 7 p.m. in Nunemaker Auditorium.

Following the screening, a panel featuring U.S. Attorney Kenneth Polite, Orleans Parish Coroner Dr. Jeffery Rouse, representatives from the FBI and DEA, and a family member who lost a loved one from an overdose will discuss the cycle of addiction and explore what can be done to help reverse the cycle.
