The Anonymous People Documentary: Breaking the Silence
How many people are living in long-term alcohol or drug addiction recovery? Probably more than you thought—approximately 23 million Americans, in fact. The Anonymous People is a feature-length documentary that includes interviews with more than 30 prominent people—including award winning actress Kristen Johnston, former NBA star Chris Herren, Miss USA 2006 Tara Conner, and former congressman Patrick Kennedy—who courageously speak out about what it means to live in recovery.
Filmmaker Greg Williams’ intent is to break the stigma and silence around what being a recovering addict is, and he raises questions about how addiction treatment is viewed and covered by healthcare. Watch the trailer and find a screening in your local area.
