Storyline

Deeply entrenched social stigma have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. The vacuum created by this silence has been filled by sensational mass media depictions of addiction that continue to perpetuate a lurid public fascination with the dysfunctional side of what is a preventable and treatable health condition. Just like women with breast cancer, or people with HIV/AIDS, 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 the citizens, leaders, volunteers, corporate executives, and public figures who are laying it all on the line to save the lives of others just like them. This passionate new public recovery movement is fueling a changing conversation that aims to transform public opinion, and finally shift problematic policy toward ... Written by Greg Williams

Awesome! Best film ever about recovery and the shame and stigma that go along with being an alcoholic or addict!
29 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

I am so happy to be a part of this movement! People in recovery deserve to be treated with respect this same way any other person with a disease is. Please go see it or become a team captain to get it to your town. I di, and we sold 176 seats! Everyone was fired up when the left and want to organize to help reduce the stigma. AWESOME!I bought the DVD of the movie and I am showing it to people who couldn't make it the night it played at the movies!As a result of this movie, people all over the Untited States are now organizing so our voices can be heard! Even Bill W. shared his story to help AA when he thought it was appropriate. Well, I think now it is more appropriate than ever! Go see the film!
