Chasing the Dragon

On March 12th, our St. Louis chapter in conjunction with the Kansas City chapter jointly presented “Chasing the Dragon” in Jefferson City. This is the second time in as many years, the FBISTLCAAA helped the FBI and DEA inform the public about the dangers of abusing prescription drugs. This year’s panel included a mother and daughter who gave very emotional testimony about the daughter’s journey from addiction to recovery. These two women actually attended our “Chasing the Dragon” event in Festus almost exactly a year ago. Watching the film helped both women see each other’s perspective. After more tough love from her mother, the daughter finally agreed to an out-of-state treatment program that lasted 10 months. The women’s courage to testify at the event gave hope to other families suffering from drug addiction. Thank you Board Director Pastor Randy Gray for spearheading this event.
