Attorney General premiering documentary on danger of heroin and prescription drugs

In response to a heroin and prescription drug epidemic that claimed more lives in Virginia in 2014 than car crashes, Attorney General Mark R. Herring is premiering Heroin: The Hardest Hit, a powerful documentary about the danger of heroin and prescription drugs and their impact on Virginia families and communities, a news release said.

The documentary, which was produced by the Office of Attorney General, features Virginians telling their own stories of addiction, overdose and recovery, and it features powerful testimony from parents who lost their children to an overdose, as well as law enforcement and healthcare professionals working to address the problem.

The movie, which will be available free of charge to schools, faith organizations, law enforcement, public health organizations, and others, is part of Attorney General Herring’s efforts to educate Virginians on these dangerous drugs and prevent abuse and addiction.

Northern Virginia Screening will be at Fairlington Community Center, Room 118, 3308 S. Stafford Street, Arlington, Virginia
on Tuesday, Dec. 15 at 7 p.m.

Heroin: The Hardest Hit will also air on television stations statewide throughout January due to agreements with WWBT-NBC12 (Richmond) and Cox Media, the news release stated.
