An educational video that profiles the risks and consequences of opiate prescription drug and heroin abuse has received a prestigious bronze Telly award.

The video, "Equal Opportunity Destroyer," includes interviews with recovering addicts, treatment professionals and others. It was developed through a partnership between the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of West Virginia and the Huntington Police Department.

The video was funded by a grant from the West Virginia Division of Justice and Community Services and produced by Huntington-based Trifecta Productions.

"The folks at Trifecta did a remarkable job of capturing the power of the real-life stories in a film that hits hard on the message that opiate abuse and its tragic consequences can happen to anyone," said Booth Goodwin, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of West Virginia. "It is our hope that some of the young people who view the video will make better decisions regarding opiates and other drugs."
