On behalf of the Henrico County Heroin Task Force:
Henrico County and its Heroin Task Force will present a community summit Wednesday, March 1 on heroin and opioid abuse and addiction, which are growing at alarming rates locally, throughout Virginia and across the United States.
FBI Director James B. Comey, a former resident of Henrico, will be the event’s keynote speaker.
The summit will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. at Glen Allen High School, 10700 Staples Mill Road. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. To register, go to heroinopioidcommunitysummit.eventbrite.com or call 727-8574.
The summit is part of a comprehensive effort in Henrico to address the serious public threat posed by heroin and opioids. These potent, highly addictive drugs, which include prescription painkillers such as OxyContin and Vicodin, are threatening every community and segment of society, regardless of age or income.
The summit also will offer information from local community service providers and include a showing of “Chasing the Dragon: The Life of an Opioid Addict,” a documentary released last year by the FBI and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
The video presentation will be followed by a panel discussion that will include Henrico’s Police Chief Humberto “Hum” Cardounel Jr., Fire Chief Anthony E. McDowell, Sheriff Michael L. Wade, Commonwealth’s Attorney Shannon L. Taylor and Adam S. Lee, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Richmond Division, as well as others on the front lines of the heroin and opioid crisis.
The Henrico Heroin Task Force was established in May 2016 by County Manager John A. Vithoulkas to work with the community and treatment providers to develop a coordinated, comprehensive response to the epidemic. For information about the task force, contact Laura S. Totty, director of Henrico Area Mental Health & Developmental Services, at 727-8585.
