Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101

Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101 – The Anonymous People

This week Denise talks about the concept of anonymity in reference to the recovery and addiction community. Greg Williams, this week’s guest, is the producer of the film The Anonymous People, a feature documentary film about the over 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addictions. Entrenched social stigma have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. A grass roots social justice movement is emerging. Courageous addiction recovery advocates have come out of the shadows and are organizing to end discrimination and move toward recovery-based solutions.

The moving story of The Anonymous People is told through the faces and voices of citizens, leaders, volunteers, corporate executives, public figures, and celebrities who are laying it all on the line to save the lives of others just like them. This passionate new public recovery movement aims to transform public opinion, engage communities and elected officials, and finally shift problematic policy toward lasting solutions.
