Showing of Anonymous People
September 22, 2014 | 7:00 pm
Is observance of Recovery Month, the movie Anonymous People will be shown. This documentary film features prominent people who live publicly in long-term recovery and discusses how 23 million other Americans are also living publically in long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs. Their brave testimonies dispel long-standing cliches about addiction and recovery which we hope will help to break down the deeply entrenched social stigma and discrimination that have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. This passionate new public recovery movement is fueling a changing conversation that aims to transform public opoinion, and finally shift problematic policy toward lasting recovery solutions.
