"This insightful film raises awareness of the more than 23 million people in our country who are living in long-term recovery from alcohol and drug addiction," said Dr. Margaret Nagib of Timberline Knolls, a leading residential treatment center for women and adolescent girls struggling with addiction, eating disorders, trauma, mood and co-occurring disorders. "As a society, it's time for us to change the conversation about addiction and recovery and aim for solutions that work in the long run."
The Refuge, located in Ocklawaha, is a local treatment center for men and women who struggle with addiction, trauma and other co-occurring disorders.
The Anonymous People depicts the deeply entrenched social stigma that has kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. The vacuum has been filled with sensational mass media depictions of people with addiction that perpetuate a lurid 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 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.
