Chasing the Dragon: The Life of an Opiate Addict

Provided by the FBI Newark Citizens Academy Alumni Association

In collaboration with the FBI Newark Citizens Academy Alumni Association, Hackensack Meridian Health and the Lakeland Bank Foundation, bergenPAC has created a virtual assembly program that is designed to educate students on the rising issue of opioid abuse. This program has become an extremely powerful presentation that has already impacted an estimated 5,000+ students so far for this important life topic about opioids. It has become apparent that we have become very successful in educating students and teachers on the opioid epidemic and how to deal when confronted with these real-life situations. The goal of this program is to ensure that students will make the right choices if they come into contact with opioids and other drugs. It is widely known that these drugs do not discriminate so it is our goal to reach as many students as possible, and to present this message to all demographics whether underserved or affluent. 

We will provide all materials needed so your school can easily fit this program into your school's curriculum!
