The Anonymous People – Film Screening and Discussion

The Anonymous People is a feature documentary film about the more than 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs.  

Deeply entrenched social stigma have 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.

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.

UNH campus can be part of the conversation! Join us for a screening of The Anonymous People that will be followed by a discussion with Brian Miller, LICSW, MLADC, UNH Social Work Program; Sandi Coyle, MS, NH Bureau for Drug and Alcohol Services; Dean Lemire, BA, '10 UNH, Bonfire Recovery Services; and additional members from the local recovery community.
